Little girl desperately wants to calm giant horse – now watch the animal’s reaction

When we are faced with unfamiliar animals bigger than ourselves, our instinct is to be cautious. It takes a while for animals to get to know us, they need to smell us and get used to our voices before trust can be established.

But children don’t understand this and usually want to get straight in there and start hugging the animal.

However big or small you are, animals can sense when you love them and are no threat and this huge horse is  no exception.

Watch what happens when 5-year-old Lilly Rae comforts a giant horse; the video has gone viral.
