Save The Horses

Positively amazing! Did you hear about the horses that were trapped for 3 days on a tiny piece of land in wind and rain in the Netherlands last month? (October-November 2006)

It had the nation mesmerized, watching about 100 horses huddle against the wind and watching 18 of them die. First firemen, then the Dutch army tried to rescue them, both unsuccessfully.

Four women on horseback rode out to the rescue. Here's a video of it.....

THE SOUND BEGINS ABOUT 58 SECONDS AFTER THE START.....

I still do not know how to post stuff like you professionals. You may just have to cut and past the above url.

Sorry.

That's amazing. What a story. I love things like that. Animals are so defenseless and I love happy endings. Kudos to the women who rode out there to save the horses. Love it!
