The Great Netherlands Horse Rescue

The Great Netherlands Horse Rescue
By Chris, Five Star Ranch Staff Writer

The biggest horse story that came out of The Netherlands in 2006 was the amazing tale of the Great Netherlands Horse Rescue. A group of about 100 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.
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.
