You’ve all probably seen the photos of the horse, Guy, who was found completely stuck in mud from the recent hurricane flood waters in Houston.
I captured a few photos, just in case you missed this amazing recovery.
From what I understand, he was found stuck in mud up to his shoulders. Since his location was flooded, it took hours from rescuers to arrive. The rescuers dug around Guy, who was exhausted, until they could free him.
Eventually, Guy was pulled out of the mud and warmed. Although the most recent post was taken down, Guy was walking and eating the following day – he had ice boots on his rear legs.
Anyway, I thought it was an amazing rescue. Again, I don’t have the story, just the pics.
I found one news story, linked here.
Friday, September 20, 2019 7:21PMSPLENDORA, Texas (KTRK) — A long day for flood rescue volunteers became even longer when a group stumbled upon a horse stuck in the mud in Splendora.
Thursday, volunteers from 3P Search & Rescue found the animal in dire need of rescue as remnants from Tropical System Imelda flooded the area.
Video shows the team digging through the mud for four hours to free the horse.
The horse named Guy had to be accessed by boat, according to volunteer Josh James, who spent 14 hours before the horse rescue helping flood victims get to dry ground.
The good news is Guy was able to stand on his own after being freed from the mud.
I am so very sorry to hear this. He certainly deserved the chance. When I heard of the significant swelling of his leg (or legs) I was afraid something like this would happen. It is so sad to lose a beautiful animal, especially after such an effort to save him.
I am sorry to announce the Guy had to be put down due to the significant trauma. He fought a hard fight but it was just too much for him. I have been following his story as one of the people who lived on the property is a friend of mine.
