If you’re the kind of person who tears up at animal friendships, don’t skip this video.
The horse’s upper lip does not get enough credit, in my humble and totally uncalled-for opinion. It’s the upper lip that provides the horse’s sense of “feel” when they’re investigating an object, after all, and the upper lip is a critical component of eating and grazing.
It’s also, apparently, the ultimate tool for petting a kitten.

Generally when my horses try this whole “oh, let me rub your shoulder” thing, it turns into attempted nibbling on my shoulder before I shoo them away. This horse seems to be genuinely gentle with his little feline friend, and we can almost hear the kitten purring happily away.
