WASHINGTON (CIRCA via STORYFUL) — A pair of hardy Belgian draft horses pulled a semitractor-trailer up Lizzie and Jacob Hershberger’s steep and icy driveway in southern Minnesota on Wednesday after the owner of the truck, Craig Helgeson, got in a bit of trouble trying to make the journey.
Helgeson stepped out of the truck and let driver Josie Swartzentruber take over as the Hershbergers' team of equines helped get the truck up the hill.
Lizzie Hershberger told Storyful that she and her husband grew up around horses. Hershberger said the horses were bred and trained for such work and were unharmed. She said that while the horses regularly pull heavy loads, a semitractor-trailer was a first for them.
