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.
