Newborns are the source of massive amounts of anxiety for their parents, who typically watch their baby's every blink, breath,and move especially in the first hours after birth.


We'll never know whether this mare happened to glance away atjustthe wrong moment, or if her hours-oldfoalhad an especially clumsy slip and fall. But when Boneca's owners saw her running around frantically in their pasture in Brazil's Sao Gabriel do Oeste, they knew something was wrong



The last time they'd seen Boneca, she was very visibly pregnant, but the "baby bump" was gone. Which meant she'd given birth overnight.
After hearing a series of cries coming from underground, they zeroed in on a small hole in the pasture onejustbig enough to trap a newborn horse.


One of the farmers grabbed a hoe and began digging away at the dirt, widening the hole enough so they could pull the little guy out and reunite him with his worried mama.



The whole time, she circled the men, worried that her baby wouldn't get out in time. Finally, Boneca and her baby could breathe a big sigh of relief.

Of course, the foal (which the farmers decided to name Ant) had worked up quite an appetite during his harrowing ordeal and went directly to Mom for some much-needed nourishment
