This is the adorable moment a four-year-old girl brings her pet horse inside the house in northern China to snack on some apples and carrots.
The cute duo were filmed by the girl’s mother, named Ms Wu Ricaifu in local media in Baotou, in the province of Inner Mongolia.
In the footage, the girl can be seen leading the horse into the house to share snacks and she then proceeds to feed it some chopped-up carrots off the kitchen table while gently petting it as she eats her apple.
After they are done munching on the healthy treats, the girl walks the horse back outside and begins grooming it.
Another piece of footage shows the girl being sat on the gentle horse’s saddle as they go
for a slow, relaxing walk appearing to be led by mum Wu who is behind the camera.
Ms Wu told local media that their family owns almost 400 horses, but this one is their daughter’s favourite.
This Arabian horse had facial paralysis before, and the child’s father cured it with traditional acupuncture and gave it to his daughter as a fourth birthday present, according to Ms Wu.
The horse is very grateful and is very close to its young owner, Ms Wu added.
