Poor thing - I hope this is just one of many. It's just heart-breaking.

Very lucky horse!

Yesterday I was watching live coverage on TV and saw the horses with their heads on a house roof after this the camera panned to some people in a boat rescuing the horses they had a rope on one and it was panicking and going under the boat the filming stopped and that part of the footage hasn't' been shown again does anyone know the out come for those horses?

This was sent to me by a friend today. I think there are some links to it as well that have more horse flood vids. Keep a tissue handy.

Some links are not QLD floods, but American ones.

Here is the footage you described, acu-light.

The struggling creature they are trying to save is actually a cow, the poor thing is so panicked. Bless those people who are risking their lives trying to save it - I hope they succeeded.

Two of the horses have their backs out of the water, they look as though they are standing on a lower part of the roof or something. Can only hope the poor creatures survived somehow. - the swimmer had a long way to go !

:(

(I should add a warning - this is quite upsetting to watch)

It's dreadful, isn't it... and the poor cow with her shorter legs and short neck can't even stand on whatever it is that the horses are standing on - you can see why they had to try to save her first.
