Marek has spent thirteen years of his life raising horses. This experience has taught him to fear events much like the one that you are about to see for yourself in the clip below. Tragedies like these are difficult to expect and when they come along, they tend to knock all of the wind completely out of our sails. Just imagine how sad it would be to walk into your barn one morning and come across the scene that Marek did.
On one fateful morning, Marek was stunned and horrified to discover his horse had taken a serious spill and become stuck in a maintenance pit as a result. Since the average horse can weigh anywhere from 800 pounds to well over a ton, it was safe to say that Marek was not going to be able to remove the animal on his own. Freedom the horse was in the pit for a very long time and no one knows exactly how long she was stuck before Marek found her.
Marek’s first idea was to place some hay inside of the pit, as a means of allowing Freedom to gain her footing. But this plan was not enough to help her get out of the hole and the farmer knew that he would have to come up with something else…and fast! From there, he knew that it was time to contact the fire department and during these desperate moments, he made a heartbreaking plea.
Begging Freedom not to die, he pleaded for a sign of hope that she could hold on until the fire department could arrive and provide her with the rescue that she so desperately needed. The fire department would also need a sign that she was going to be okay before they were willing to drop everything and make the trip out to Marek’s barn.
It was at this moment that the most magical thing happened. Freedom was able to stand up and with the use of her front legs, she signaled her willingness to try and get herself out of this hole that she found herself in. Would you like to find out how this amazing rescue went once the firefighters arrived on the scene? If so, the video below is an incredible watch.
All it took was a little bit of extra pulling and tugging from the firefighters and Freedom was back out of the hole. A story like this could have had a much sadder ending than the one that was experienced and we are sure that Marek will never allow something like this to happen ever again. Take a moment to spread the love far and wide by passing this on to the loved ones in your life as soon as possible.
Before this moment can take place, a groom must unveil their bride and there is simply no preparation that can prepare a person for the emotion of this moment. This couple’s unveiling provides us with one of the most priceless wedding moments that we have ever seen, as Seun Ajayi (a well known actor) and his bride to be, Damilola, are on the verge of the long awaited lip lock.
Seun cannot contain his enthusiasm during the unveiling and if you ever wanted to see what true love looks like, this is the moment you have been waiting for. The video of this moment went viral and it is because of the reaction that Seun had to the big reveal. When he lifted the veil to look closer at his bride, he clapped his hands and busted a spin move from The Temptations handbook.
You simply cannot duplicate the type of joy that he was feeling in this moment and his million dollar smile lit up the entire room. While he is going to get to the kiss eventually, he cannot get over how good Damilola looks in this moment. Even the pastor gets in on the act, with a hilarious reaction that we would be hard pressed to mimic.
Seun did not care who was present or who was watching. He allowed his love for his wife to take control of him and his lack of restraint is one of the most charming things that we have ever seen. If it were up to us, then every single romantic comedy or Disney fairy would end up with a moment like this one. In his mind, he has won the romance jackpot and we treasure his blissful enthusiasm.
Seun’s excitement was evident in the weeks leading up to the big day, as he posted this message on social media about his bride-to-be:
“In November of 2015! At a time when I wasn’t even searching, God sent me a gift! A sweet soul wrapped in a boisterous and fun-loving personality. With a smile that literally lights up the room. ‘Anike’ a prize to be cherished; I can’t wait to chase 10,000 with you by my side. I’m super stoked we are here… The ride of a lifetime starts…”
If you would like to get a closer look at the couple’s first kiss, then be sure to watch this awesome video. Once you have seen the special moment for yourself, you will definitely want to pass it along to the hopeless romantics in your life immediately.
There is a common misconception that they are big and plodding creatures who do not process emotion. Their size belies the deep feelings that they experience and when this mother elephant was facing one of the most challenging and heartbreaking situations that any parent can ever go through. While some thought that she was digging this hole for the sake of digging, the truth is much more heartbreaking.
When this mother’s calf fell into a well, she was not willing to leave the child behind and we commend her commitment to rescuing her baby. She started to dig the hole with the use of her trunk and utilized her feet to finish the process. Unfortunately, the mother did not realize that she was only exacerbating the problem by pushing more mud into the hole.
Little did she know that she was slowly smothering the child and keeping the hole from being dug properly. The baby became trapped at 9 PM and this determined mama kept digging throughout the night and was still digging at 8 AM the next morning. We cannot even begin to imagine the sort of strength and determination that this elephant had to muster in order to sustain that kind of effort for that long.
Once the people who lived in this area heard the distress cries that were coming from this mother and her baby, they rushed to the scene immediately to offer much needed aid. Would you like to find out more about how this story played out? If so, you are going to want to check out this awesome clip for yourself. We do not wish to ruin the ending, but suffice it to say that this mother’s efforts were certainly not in vain.
If you love animal rescues as much as we do, then be sure to watch this clip in its entirety and pass it along to the other animal lovers in your life. They will definitely this mama elephant and all of the hard work that she put in.
