WATCH: Horses pull stuck semi up an icy driveway in Minnesota


Canton, Minn. (NBC) — A pair of strong horses were able to pull a stuck semi-truck up an icy driveway in Minnesota last week.

The large semi-truck became stuck at the home of a Canton couple on Dec. 5.

Jacob and Lizzie Hershberger own a pair of 13-year-old Belgian draft horses named Molly and Prince, so they hooked them up to the truck.

Jacob used a spare tire in the linkage between the horses and the truck, which allowed them to take a step before feeling the truck’s full weight.

After a few heaves, the Belgians were able to stammer forward, and as the truck started moving, a tractor was able to push the truck from behind to finish the job.

The Hershberger’s said their horses often work around the couple’s ranch hauling logs and at this time of the year.. they’ve even been hired to pull a few sleighs.
