People Can't Stop Smiling As Horse Licks Corgi, Corgi's Sweet Next Move Makes Everyone Say 'Aww'

A black stallion named Phoenix discovers love for a new furry friend in the cutest of ways. Phoenix is a fairly young horse at thirteen-years-old, and is still moved by his curiosity at the sight of a small sized corgi. The corgi, named Dezi, stands by hesitantly as the huge stallion moves toward him and begins nuzzling the fur on Dezi's neck.
Things start to change as Dezi realizes that underneath the horse's large exterior, there's a big softy. At the ranch stables in Laurel, Maryland, Phoenix is used to coming in contact with other animals, but not many like Dezi the corgi. We don't blame Dezi for seeming apprehensive at first!
But a special scene takes places while the horse continues to nibble "groom" away at Dezi. After a few seconds of warming up, Dezi begins to settle in to his new friendship with Phoenix. Dezi's owner and two more friends stand watch and reassure Dezi so that he doesn't become frightened. But if you watch closely, you will see that after awhile, Dezi isn't scared anymore at all.
Instead, Dezi reaches over and gives the horse a few kisses himself! The tension completely melts away and it's clear that the two animals are officially friends.
Not only that, but it looks like Dezi begins to sense that he has an audience. Comfortable in his new position receiving attention from his new friend, Dezi looks right at the camera and cracks a smile that gets everyone bursting into laughter.
The whole scene is adorable! It was so intriguing to Dezi's owner that he had to share it with everyone else. Not even the stable hands believed how gentle and loving the interaction would be. Owner Alexander Achs describes everyones' reaction perfectly.
"We never expected the two of them to get on like this the first time they met."
