Default Saving horses in flood waters.

Never in my life did I ever think I would ride in a boat with a donkey then pick up a mini horse. When back and draged/swam out 2 quarter horses out of a flood. They were in 6" when we got to them and it was dusk. The only hill left for them. By the time the last horse was out water was well over the knee. And 6-8' with a strong current coming across the middle of the road they had to come down. Was a experience to say the least to do it in a 18' gatortrax with a surface drive mud motor. Not the greatest pic but all we have this is the donkey. I have boated with a true ass now. The water is now about 5' on the hill we got them off of.

Now it's 12 foot were we saved the horses and think all of south east Louisiana is not much less then that. We have surpassed all recorded floods and projected to go 4' over the highest of not more in places. We need payers
