Waffles and Hemmingway are a mini horse and goose who became BFF’s at the Bucks County SPCA and got adopted together

They were both brought to the Aminal Rescue in Bucks County, PA, where the two quickly became friends and were totally inseparable. Any time they would be taken apart, one or the other would throw a fit to get back with his new friend.

Maddi and Nick are the farm owners who fell in love with the mini horse and his goose bestie. One day while visiting the shelter, Maddi saw Waffles and he immediately reminded her of her own horse Peabody. The couple filled out an application to adopt them both and soon they were taking them home.

“When I saw them I was like ‘oh my gosh, they’re about to be part of the family,’ and then my next thought was ‘oh please like me.'” Maddi told The Dodo.
