Here’s a clip of an amazing horse rescue in The Netherlands. The following text is transcribed directly from the video (spelling and all):
Rescue many horses the Netherlands
Noveber 3th, 2006
Length: 6 min. and 36 sec.
October 31th: More than one hundred horses were surprised by a heavy storm in the northern part of the Netherlands. 18 horses drowned, the rest of them got stuck on a very small island. People feared for the lives of many more horses. The first rescue attempt with the use of a boat failed because the boat got stuck into the sand. Things didn’t look good.
In the mean time the horses got desperate, and were fed by the use of a boat. Then, with a bit of luck, the water resided a bit. This was the perfect change for an unique different approach. A small group of women with horses would try to lure the more than one hundred horses to make the crossing.
November 3th, 14:00, the rescue begins. Is this going to be a success or a drama were more horses will drown?
Again from the video:
Although 18 horses died a few days earlier, it really became a happy ending, all the horses made it to dry land!
