When this little boy with Williams syndrome, named Erez, meets a horse for the first time, he is uncharacteristically shy at first.
Can you imagine if you were as small as he was and you were meeting an animal so big? But he soon warms up and snuggles up close to the gentle giant. Watching the pure joy on his face is entirely priceless.
He is going to face many roadblocks throughout his lifetime, but you can tell that his spirit and loving personality are going to be guiding lights for himself, and for his family and friends. The families of children with Williams syndrome without exception remark on how the trusting personalities open their eyes to a side of life that most people rarely see.
His condition makes it difficult for him to experience contact properly, which is what makes this video so touching.
