VIDEO: Rescued Horse Sees Snow for First Time Ever, Acts Just Like Puppy

Bella the rescue horse was thrilled when she encountered snow for the first time!

The steed, originally from Florida, had never been in this sort of weather until her relocation to Michigan. During the first snowfall of the season, she discovered that she absolutely loves it!

In this video, captured by her human guardian Stacey Pierce Dadd, Bella frolics on the freshly blanketed ground. According to Dadd, Bella had seen snow falling before, but this was her first experience with it actually sticking to the ground.

Stacey and Bella first met at Hope Equine Rescue in Auburndale, Florida, where Dadd was a volunteer. Stacey adopted Bella after caring for the horse for two years and moved north, where Bella discovered her love for winter weather!

    I’m surprised she is enjoying the snow so much, considering her origins, but it sure is beautiful to watch.
