Love between humans and animals is eternal.
A horse lover devoted his life in breeding horses. Unfortunately, he suffered cancer in his old age. His last wish was to see his favorite horse before dying.
80-year-old Frank Keat dedicated 65 years of his life with horses. Before dying from fatal cancer, he wished to see his horse. But the Bodmin Hospital didn't allow him to move outside. And the nurses managed to contact his relatives, who brought the horse to the hospital. The five-year horse entered the hospital to bid the final goodbye to his owner.
Mr. Keat found the incredible gift. Frank was just overwhelmed and speechless.
Staff nurse Samantha Russell said she was deeply moved by the event, adding: 'I can honestly say that this is the most memorable day of my career. The emotion was overwhelming and there wasn't a dry eye on the ward.
Mr Keat was a well respected personality in local equestrian circles.
His 51-year-old son said that five years ago his dad helped a horse in Bodmin, whom he took in his car for medical aid. And he is grateful to the hospital nurses.
