During the ongoing California fires, an elderly horse was filmed rescuing younger livestock from a stable fire.
Today, the little animal that Prieta saved, named Onyx, is enjoying a calm, sunny day in Southern California.
Onyx's mom, Mona Lisa, is safe after she was captured on camera being evacuated when flames broke out near the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library last week.
Horse trainer Cynthia Shea told Inside Edition that Prieta had “natural instinct for a mother to want to go back for their child. Animals have the same instincts that we do. We want to take care of our own. We want to take care of our group.”
