Reader Matt Lakin did some quick thinking and careful driving to safely herd this loose horse off a highway and into a pasture!
Reader Matt Lakin of Shropshire in the UK casually writes, “I managed to roundup this escaped horse […] I thought you may want to use the footage?”
According to Matt, “the horse was running towards a very busy road at rush hour and was only a few hundred yards from where another horse was killed in January seriously injuring the driver.”
Thanks to some quick thinking and very careful driving and on Matt’s part, he was able to pass the loose horse and then cut him off, effectively herding him into a pasture and off of the dangerous roadway. Check out the video (must be logged in to Facebook to view):
Well done, Matt! We salute you for your public service in keeping the roads safe and the horses safer.
