Horse Rescue: Rancher Uses Backhoe to Dig out a Horse Buried after a Massive Blizzard

When a massive blizzard dumped tons of snow in Laramie, Wyoming, a poor horse got stuck in a drift.

There was enough snow for the highways to be blocked. The horse struggled to get out of the snow as a backhoe dug it out.

After the ground was loose enough, the horse finally pulled itself off the ground and headed towards the farm.

In other story, a horse was spotted in the bed of a pick-up truck driving 70 miles per hour in Texas. As the animal struggled to keep its legs planted on the vehicle, a woman named Kerry Green Costello took a picture on her phone.

Although police pulled the truck over, they did not write a driver citation because there is nothing technically illegal about transporting animals in such conditions.

According to the police, the driver was on his way to work at the Stockyards. Upon interrogation, he revealed that his truck could not pull the trailer like it did so he loaded the horse into the back of another truck.

The police further added the horse, which is now safe at the Stockyards, is well-trained and worth $15,000.
