A wonderful heartwarming story of the rescue of Horses in The Netherlands. I had forgotten all about this until I came across it again today. The event was flashed all over Europe while it was in progress.
A group of over 200 horses were stranded on a small piece of land when the waters rose unexpectedly after a fierce storm. The horses were stranded for three days on a tiny sliver of land. Firemen and animal welfare officers brought the horses food and water to keep up their strength. As wind and icy rain blasted the horses, they huddled together with their rear ends facing the wind. Finally on the third day, the great rescue was made. Dozens of locals came running in from all over the local area to help
The video of the horse rescue is incredibly moving. The combination of the horse footage and music will bring happy tears to any horse lover's eyes. The sound starts about a minute into the video.
