Helicopters come in handy for more reasons than you think.

Not a horse but could easily have been.

Very cool! Thanks.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

I watched that video umpteen times while at work today, they played it over and over and over again on CNN - the poor thing looked so scared, but I thought it was absolutely wonderful of the Pilot to of done what he did.

I guess he won an award prior, for saving Wildlife before with his helicopter.

Thats soo cute! Glad he got rescued!

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

That's amazing. Good to know there are people who care out there.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

I FINALLY got to see the video. It was on the news here but it was the very last segment they had on, and right after they came back from the commercial break, the channel cut out. I stayed up until 10:30 and watched an entire newscast to watch that video and then didn't even get to see it.

Anyway, that was so cool to watch! Thanks for sharing, spyder.
