By - 6th January 2017

When Wager Lima a cowboy from Paraguay died on this New Years Day, the whole community was heartbroken. Everyone knew Wanger and his horse Sereno. They had a hugely close bond.

Sereno had been Wagner’s best friend for a long time and they had grown incredibly close.

It was Wagner’s brother’s decision that it wouldn’t be right unless Sereno was right there at the funeral so he made the plans for the loyal horse to join friends and family to pay their respects.

“You have to understand, this horse was everything to him,” Wando told Globo News. “It was as if the horse knew what was happening and wanted to say goodbye.”

His brother led an emotional walk towards his brother’s final place of rest in Cajazeiras, Brazil.

Sereno walked right along beside them, Wando wanted to horse to be there as that’s what Wager would have wanted, he never expected that the horse would be able to make sense of the event, never mind actual show emotion for the passing.
