A farmer whose horses were trapped in a flooded field during Storm Callum in Monmouthshire, Wales, on October 13 didn’t hesitate to jump into the water and lead the animals to safety. Becky Eardley shared video and photos of Gareth Silcox swimming through what was once a field, leading a horse who had been trapped by a fence, back to safety. After the horse and farmer made it back to dry ground safely, the exhausted animal was reunited with his friend, waiting for him in a nearby trailer. Credit: Becky Eardley via Storyful
