Horses with unusual companions [PICTURES]

  • We all know what fantastic companions horses make, but it seems we’re not the only ones who share a special bond with equines.

    When we asked Horse & Hound readers if their horses had any unusual companions, we were inundated with fabulous pictures of the most unlikely friendships.

    From goats, alpacas and sheep, to rabbits, hens and cows, we hope you enjoy our selection of horses and ponies with their unusual animal friends.
