A couple of years ago, an event occurred that could have wiped out the horses.
Clydesdale horses are very sweet and intelligent creatures. They can be found on ranches, in parades, or even in Budweiser ads. A couple of years ago, an event occurred that could have wiped out several Clydesdale horses.
“Lightning struck exactly at night. Family members frightenedly ran out of the rooms, thinking that some kind of bomb had exploded. Lightning ignited a fire at the ranch. 14 Clydesdale horses and one three-week-old foal were trapped”, owner Shannon Martin told WKYC.
The ranch door was locked, and the frightened people could not find the key to the door. The horses’ lives were in trouble – they had to act differently … At that moment, the 16-year-old youth of Macon’s owners drove his John Deer Gator right through the door.
The young man’s unexpected plan saved the lives of the horses. The boy kicked the door open with a car and they were able to let the Clydesdales in before the fire consumed them.
“He acted like Rambo. We were all scared and didn’t know how to help the animals. Macon bravely saved the Clydesdales”, Shannon said.
Unfortunately, the ranch burned down and could not be saved. The owners were sad that the crayfish, which they were making inch by inch, turned into dust, but resigned themselves to the fact that the most important thing is that the horses are alive!
They later discovered that one of their horses, Phoebe, was pregnant with a foal. Thanks to this smart boy, not only the old horses were saved, but this unborn foal also got the opportunity to be born.
