Clydesdale Wreck in Abilene (Everything ok)

Has anyone seen this?! It showed up on my Facebook newsfeed.

I about had a heart attack. Look how calm those horses are considering the situation that they are in! I'm just stunned. So glad everyone came out of it okay. And good job on the quick work of the crew getting them out of the jumble as quickly and quietly as possible.

Happens around 4 minutes.

I saw it, and was absolutely stunned ar how quiet all of the horses were. I thought the two on the ground must be badly injured ( or even dead). But nope, just completely calm, thank goodness

I am amazed at how calm those horses remained through that - and how brave the handlers were to get right in there among them to deal with the last one still on the ground. Testimony to amazing training and horsemanship

Wow! SO cool! Those horses really know and trust their handlers. The accident happened so fast, maybe they were going too fast into a tight turn and one horse slipped?

I looked into the Budweiser Clydesdales as a career, but you have to be 21 to work there, understandably.

Wow, I love it when a bad day has a happy ending.

I'd love to hear what the team masters have to say about the cause of this miscue....

Still, this shows that all that training really paid off. Impressive, though this could have been tragic.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
