Clydesdale rolls with complete joy during sunny day

Belle is an enormous and beautiful Clydesdale horse who loves life. She adores the farm that is now her home. She spends her days in a paddock or in the barn with 9 other horses in the herd. She also runs free in a lush, green meadow next to the paddock, a wide expanse of land with gentle slopes covered in grass and wildflowers. Belle also loves sunny days and the warmth of a summer breeze. Here, Belle has just been let out into the paddock with the other horses. She walked around with her nose in the air and checked out all the sights. Then she chose a spot in the dirt and lay down for a good roll. Horses roll for a variety of reasons, but Belle seems to do this most when she's happy and carefree, as she seems to be on this early summer day. Belle and the others live the good life at an incredible farm called The Mane Intent. It's in Indian River, near Peterborough, Ontario. The Mane Intent is no ordinary farm. The herd has been carefully selected for their unique abilities to work with people in unique circumstances. The farm offers experiential learning and development. Some come here to discover or work on leadership skills. Others come here for introspection and a different perspective on themselves. And some come here for healing or to help with emotions that follow traumatic incidents. Many trauma victims and first repsonders find that horses open up the door to discovery of a path forward after a difficult experience. Horses have been used for healing and therapy for many years and professionals are now recognizing even more how beneficial they can be. The horses in Belle's herd have come from a variety of backgrounds. Some worked extremely hard and some needed a more ideal home, but whatever brought them here, they are all living in a little paradise and accomplishing some amazing things for very deserving people.

Polite deer bows head to receive treats

This deer is so gentle and polite! He has been taught to bow his head to ask for food. This video was taken in Nara Deer Park in Japan. In this 1600 acre park, over a thousand friendly deer have all learned to bow like this. It has become a popular tourist attraction and many vendors around the park sell “deer cookies” which are healthy for the deer. Feeding them other food is discouraged. It is free to enter and explore the park. Must visit!

On a warm summer day near Peterborough, Ontario, a lush, green meadow lies waiting. The wind bends the wildflowers and long grass gently. Shadows of the few small clouds play across the field slowly. The scenery is a mix of gorgeous green hues and blue and white blossoms. Only one thing would make this spectacular landscape any more beautiful. A magnificent herd of horses strolls in the paddock next to meadow until they see that the gate is open, inviting them to stretch their legs and run free in the sun. They pick up their pace excitedly and each one falls into line as they trot through the gate and into the pasture. Here, they break into a run and make their way to middle before stopping to graze briefly and catch their breath. Suddenly, out of the blue, one of the horses will raise its head, sniff the breeze and burst into a a gallop. The others follow as they make their way up the slope to the upper meadow where they all meet again to stand and graze. Samson, a magnificent and powerful chocolate brown Clydesdale, always takes up the rear. His giant hooves create a thunderous sound as he moves. Harry, the only one wearing a halter, runs more quickly to catch his friend, Sebastian. The two are never far apart. Harry is wearing a fly shield as he is being treated for an eye condition. This magical place is the Mane Intent in Indian River, near Peterborough, Ontario. As gorgeous as this farm is, and as breath taking as the herd is in a gallop, the most wonderful thing about it is actually impossible to see here.

Rescued ducklings' beautiful response to being released on a pond1m30s

Rescued ducklings' beautiful response to being released on a pond

These five adorable little ducklings are only a few days old. They were orphaned and found running around in a parking lot of a motel in Peterborough, Ontario. A kindhearted man named Mike had traveled from British Columbia and was staying at the motel because his company, Mercroft Construction, had been contracted for a big job in Ontario. As he finished work and reached the motel, he saw the ducklings without their mother. He watched them for several hours and there was no sign of the mother. She may have been hit by a car or caught by a predator, but either way, Mike knew the ducklings were in trouble and needed help. He scooped up the five little orphans and put them in his bathtub for the night. He gave them some water and some food but he didn’t know what he was going to do with them. Luckily, he had a friend named Kirk who lived in the area. Kirk introduced Mike to a woman named Lucy Davidson, a kind hearted soul who is well known for her love for animals. She runs the Wagging Tails Pet Retreat but her farm is truly an animal sanctuary for creatures who need more love and care than some people can give. Almost all of her animals are rescues. Lucy has a friend who is a veterinarian. She called Dr. Kristy for help with the ducklings. Birds need to be raised with other wild birds so they learn social and survival skills as well as a healthy fear of humans. Dr. Kristy put the ducklings in her pond while she arranged for them to be taken to the Sandy Pines Wildlife Centre in Napanee, Ontario. The ducklings were thrilled to be set free in the pond for the morning. They splashed and played in the water, diving below, and running across the surface. It was heart warming to see their reaction as they realized that they were being set free on the pond. They had spent the last day in a parking lot, a bathtub, and a box before finally reaching the freedom of the pond. The ducklings also gorged themselves on duckweed and algae. With full bellies, they were placed back in the box for the last time, so that they could be driven to Sandy Pines. Here they will experience even more freedom and top notch care until they are big enough and strong enough to be released into the wild. Sandy Pines Wildlife Centre will ensure that they have the skills that they need to thrive on their own. Sandy Pines Wildlife Centre relies on donations from the public. Please visit their site “sandypineswildlife.org” to seek advice and assistance or to make a donation.

Loving moment between cow and newborn calf will melt your heart1m15s

Loving moment between cow and newborn calf will melt your heart

Cows are among the most gentle animals in the world. Despite their immense size, they are peaceful and sweet in their disposition. They have a soulful face and big, endearing eyes that tug at your heartstrings. Calves are even more beautiful and endearing. Clumsy and playful, they are a joy to watch. Their inquisitiveness is irresistible. This calf is less than one day old. He was born on a sunny spring day on a beautiful farm near Millbrook, Ontario. The cows on this farm roam free on a lush green meadow with rolling hills, a pond for drinking from and trees all around. They have acres of fresh grass and more pasture than they can possibly eat. The farmers are attentive and caring, making sure the cows are as healthy and happy as can be. Iris is an extremely proud and loving mother. Her calf is resting in the long grass, taking a break from nursing and learning to walk and run on his brand new legs. Iris stands over her baby protectively and licks his head and face in the most loving way imaginable. She stops for a moment and her calf looks up at her as if in awe and wonder, waiting for the bath to continue. He's clearly in heaven with all the attention from his mom. Iris goes back to licking her baby and showering him with love. It's heart warming to see a mother so proud and so attentive with a newborn. Cows lick their young to promote bonding, to show affection, and also for grooming. Cleanliness is important for this calf in order to discourage harmful insects and also to remove the smells that would attract the attention of predators. In the first hour after being born, a calf will already be able to walk and even run, but it will take a few weeks for them to gain enough balance and strength to run away from predators. During this time, the mother will not venture farm from her baby. She will always be ready to defend the calf if needed. Even the other cows in the herd will protect the offspring of another cow. They will show affection and provide protection very readily. Watching an interaction like this is not only enough to melt your heart; it is a demonstration of the cow's capacity for emotion and love. We often underestimate this ability in animals, yet it is undeniable if we only open our eyes to see it.
