Horses are some of the most beautiful animals on planet Earth.

They’re famous for their graceful gait, their shiny coats, and beautiful manes that make every hairstylist envious. For thousands of years, horses have worked side by side with humans.

Early humans began domesticating horses around 4000 BC, and by 3000 BC they have been believed to be widespread. There are so many different breeds from every location on the planet.

Horses come in different sizes, colors, and personalities that depend on the work or application called for. The Belgian Draft is one of those “you’d have to see it to believe it” kind of horses.

It is one of the strongest draft breeds and has held the record for being the tallest and largest of their kind on this planet.

They are very strong and hardworking, which makes them ideal for lots of agricultural and pulling work.

Belgian Drafts are docile and willing, which also makes them great for riding pleasure and as show horses. Just like this family of three.

This mare and her two foals are quite the good-looking bunch. Check out mom’s muscles!

According to the uploader, Robert Piessens, the two young ones are Lisa and Fien. Both are four days old. To look like that at four days old is unbelievable.

You can see both just nursing from their stunning mother. These horses look like something from a fantasy novel or film. Their coats aren’t exactly black but more like a greyish brown at certain angles.

The pretty mare just grazes as her young ones walk and run around her. One even looks to be running towards the one recording them and stops short out of curiosity.

They follow mom whenever she decides to stretch those ridiculously huge muscles, and they must be wondering what feats mom is capable of doing.

A young girl then walks up to the huge mare and has a brief exchange with her first. Looks like she wants to play with the kids!

It’s always good to ask for a parent’s permission before approaching their young and this smart little lady did just that!

The video has over 7 million views, and even viewers in the comments section noticed the connection.

“Pleas note the child approaches in clear view of the mother. The mother smells her first then she approach the foal,” says a commenter.

The young girl in her pretty pink button-down approaches one of the mare’s young and proceeds to pet them. Not sure if that’s Lisa or Fien, but you can see the curiosity and interest of the young horse.

Looks like they’ve both made new friends!

The mother and her young seem to have startled the pretty human when they moved but it’s all good. One of the horses drops down to the grass and even belly’s up as the girl pets him (her?).

Don’t worry, there will be more days to interact! Finally, a man arrives and leads the mom and her young out of the grassy area and maybe they went home? We can’t tell but those are really beautiful horses.

It’s so sweet to see how gentle the little girl is with the horses, and it’s also adorable to see how the baby horses respond to her. This video is just chockful of cuteness all around.
