After three whole years apart, two wild horses get reunited, and it's the most heartwarming reunion you've ever seen. You might think that they wouldn't recognize each other after such a long time apart, but they did - instantly. 

The male horse got adopted first, and though he was well taken care of, he had a hard time getting used to the new place and making friends. As his owner explains, it was clear as day that something was missing for him, that he had missed his family. So, the amazing owner spent years looking for a female horse who was in a picture she had with the male horse, and after three years, she accidentally found her. 

All it took was for the male to hear the sound of the female to come running to her, and from there on, it was like these amazing horses were never separated at all.

Meet Ronnie, the sassiest rooster in the world. This beautiful rooster has one day simply walked into this couple's home and decided that it's his now, and well... they didn't argue. So now, he's part of the family. 

He loves attentions, sitting on the ceiling fan, and crowing at totally random times. The mirror confuses him, he runs after balls when his owners throw them for the dogs, and he doesn't like being alone. 

It's a strange addition to the family, even the dog seems to think that way, but Ronnie looks like he's loving it, his presence brings them joy, and that's what matters. He's also the ultimate proof that roosters are pretty heckin' cool.

In every cub's life, there's an incredible moment - the moment they meet their dad for the first time. It's totally normal for them to be separate at first, and that makes for some of the cutest first time dad meeting ever. This meeting goes as good as it could, and it's totally adorable. 

The dad roars at them a couple times, and they jump back - the big lion is intimidating, that's true, but he's also a perfect gentleman. He just has to show them how to be a proper fierce lion. And the little cubs are happy, excited, and playful. And adorable. Don't forget adorable. The big bad terrifying lion dad is also kind of really adorable, not gonna lie. 

Now, the mom is not going to have to protect her babies alone, and the pride is going to be stronger than ever. Of course, the little hooligans will keep up their shenanigans, but dad's gonna make sure that they know exactly how to be the fiercest, scariest (and cutest) lions around.

Awwdorable Pics Of Blended Family (16 Images)

We don't quite know what to make of this special family but all we know is that we're obsessed and need more. 

Bob and Marley are both golden retrievers with a huge Instagram following, and they also have a huge family. And when we say family, we don't mean a bunch of little golden pups running around. We mean a blended family, a family that consists of multiple birds, and a hamster. What's the most impressive thing about this unique family is their calm interaction with each other. So calm that their owner can line them us for incredible photographs like the images below. 

You can follow this adorable family on Instagram for even more incredible moments!

Elephants are just truly one of the most incredible animals to ever walk the Earth. 

Just the way they look out and care for one another is tremendous. We could really learn a lot from them. 

This video was captured in Kruger National Park in South Africa. The footage shows the baby elephant stuck in a mud bank and the moment the herd rushed over to help this adorable baby up and out. They're family and family means... "no one gets left behind."

Yes, we quoted Lilo & Stitch but it just seemed really appropriate here.

Glad everyone was alright!

The non-traditional family trio is caring for three little baby eagles that hatched in a nest along the Mississippi River near Fulton, Illinois. Stewards of the Upper Mississippi River Refuge, set up the webcam in 2011, allowing the world watch the incredible interactions between the three, two males and a female, which is incredibly rare to see as males tend to be territorial. 

The eagles have also been named, the males go by Valor I and Valor II, and the female is named Starr. 

According to the Stewards of the Upper Mississippi Refuge, these birds have quite a back story, as well. The original trio was formed in 2013, when the female then chose a new mate, Valor II, and Valor I decided to stay throughout the breeding season. The original female was killed by another eagle in 2017, yet the two males stayed together and courted a new female after their first mate died. That female was Starr. And Here we are, two years later and three baby eaglets receiving extra love and care from a total of three parents.
