Mom sets her baby down on the barn floor, right below the horse. The horse knows just what to do

This story is all about a horse and a baby and their rise to viral stardom! It all started when Tracy Lega took her little one with her into the stable to visit her horse, Donato. After putting the baby down all tucked up snugly in her carrier, she begins to fuss. Donato’s attention is immediately captured.
It's no wonder that children are often afraid of animals. They’re bigger and strange looking, and they smell funny too! But this baby doesn’t seem to be a bit afraid of the enormous horse towering above her.
