We recently had floods spilling water from all the smaller streams in our area,whilst the big river maintained it’s usual level.
I took a walk to see where the water had inundated the places I often take my daily walk through, and I was fortunate enough to be there at the moment of this rescue of their horse from a flooded paddock, by this woman and her daughter.
The mail box in the photo is at the edge of the usual roadway!
I really liked the photo and the beaming smile I got from the woman rescuer when I aimed the camera in her direction.
She said the horse wasn’t particularly keen to go into the water, but I noted that once in it the animal didn’t falter in following his rescuer’s lead.
