34-year-old Wagner Figueiredo de Lima and his horse, Sereno, were the best of friends. Wherever you found one, the other wasn’t too far behind; they were inseparable.

But sadly Lima passed away earlier this week from injuries he suffered in a traffic accident near his home in Paraiba, Brazil. Although Sereno may not understand the situation to the full extent, he did realize that his best friend was no longer around, and he was devastated.

On Tuesday, family and friends gathered around for Lima’s funeral before he was laid to rest. Lima’s brother Wando thought that Sereno should be in attendance for the funeral as well since he meant so much to Lima and vice versa.

When the truck with Lima’s coffin arrived, Sereno seemed to know that his best friend was inside.

“He began to walk around the coffin, smelling the coffin. Then he neighed,” attendee Kyioshi Abreu told The Dodo. “It was a very strong emotion. Everyone who was there was moved. I cried myself when I saw that scene.”
