A stunning white carriage horse, tasked with pulling a bride and groom up a hill in intense heat, collapsed on the street in Borgetto, Italy. According to the Daily Mail, the overburdened stallion fell just outside of a church on a day which was said to be quite warm.
The video, taken by someone from a neighboring flat, shows members of the wedding party, as well as the carriage driver, attempting to unhook the exhausted horse from the carriage and offering comfort as he laid on the ground.
The ultimate fate of the stricken horse is unknown. Nucleus Operational Protection of Animals, an Italian animal welfare agency, has reached out to the local authorities to try and find out the current condition of the horse seen in the video.
