Texans Brought Their Farm Animals Into Their Home During The Snowpocalypse (Thread)

It seems like the weather in Texas is finally getting better but it's no surprise to anyone at this point as to just how scary this experience has been! Freezing temperatures in a state completely unprepared for it, no power, and now there's "boil water" notice in effect. Poor Texans have gotten hit hard but in times such as these, there are always some heartwarming sights that set a fire in our hearts. 

During what is being called, "snowpocalypse," many people have brought their outdoor animals into their homes, in order to protect them from the freezing temperature. In a Twitter thread started by @yashar, we see photos and hear stories of those who took in animals during these times.

Horse Rescued From Icy Mud Hole, Recovering Well

On Monday, Fysik, an 11-year-old retired jumping horse, sunk and got stuck up to his neck in a hole of freezing muddy water. "He was shivering and I just knew when I saw him that there was no way I was going to be able to get him out of that myself," his owner, the operator of Adorado Nino Horse Rescue and Sanctuary near Leduc, Alta, Tracy Benkendorf, told CBC news

Knowing that she couldn't do it alone, she called 911 and posted a picture of the horse on Facebook, asking if anyone knows what to do to help it. "I'm just absolutely beyond grateful for these people that came together in such an incredible, amazing way," she says about the firefighters, the RCMP, her neighbors, her veterinarian and some other people she didn't even know who arrived to help.
