We Owe a Lot to Horses

There’s a story in Connie’s book about a wagon load of people fleeing to safety, escaping the deadly firestorm. The air was so thick with smoke people fought for every breath and could not see where the road to safety was. However, the horses…the horses…the team of horses hitched to the wagon, who were also fighting to breath the acrid air…they knew. The driver gave up the reins and trusted those horses with his life and the lives of all the people on that wagon. And, you know it, the horses found their way to Duluth and delivered all those souls from the “Hellfire in Hermantown”. There’s another touching story of a horse wandering Duluth after the fires that’s well worth reading. The world owes a lot to horses.
