Herd of horses took in a lonely penguin as one of their own when it was separated from friends in the Falklands

Nuzzling up together on the frosty ground in the Falkland Islands, this might seem like the most unlikely of friendships.

But this herd of horses took in a lonely penguin as one of their own and snuggled up with their curious new companion. They were also seen playfully chasing after the bird as it stretched out its wings and waddled along the white-topped turf.

The horses also craned their necks and touched their noses with the penguin's beak in the heart-warming snaps.

Sarah Crofts, of the Falklands Conservation group, took the pictures when she spotted the unusual alliance as she was feeding her three horses. They were taken at the Cape Pembrokeshire Nature Reserve, five miles outside of Stanley, the country's capital city.

    If only humans could get along like different breeds (and "colors") of sweet would that be? animals are better than humans - humans should LEARN from the animals!

  3. Well not to compare myself to a penguin, and this is a heart warming situation for this penguin, but I too have had a similar experience, so has many other people i'm sure. I've been taken in by my friend and his family. In fact there are still cultures around the world, thought they're rare, that shelter a person in need of a home and protection. It is truly a blessing to give and to receive in such an experience.

  4. why not..horses get on with most animals.well my horse does .magpies,dogs,sheep ect
