Wagner Figueiredo de Lima and his horse Sereno were best friends, until the Brazilian’s sudden death in a traffic accident earlier this week. Knowing that the horse meant the world to him, Lima’s brother Wando decided to take Sereno to his owner’s funeral.

Rio de Janerio:
“It was as if the horse knew what was happening and wanted to say goodbye,” Wando told Globo News. “Sereno began to walk around the coffin, smelling the coffin. Then he neighed,” funeral attendee Kyioshi Abreu added.
“It was a very strong emotion. Everyone who was there was moved.” Next thing the horse stopped and placed his head against the coffin, making for a final farewell. “All the way to the cemetery, he would whimper and beat with his hooves on the ground,” says late man’s brother.
