Two horses, in the path of Hurricane Irma, didn’t have to face the raging wind and pounding rain outdoors because they were brought inside to ride out the storm in a laundry room.
On Sept. 9, Taittyn Fischer uploaded a video of the two horses, “Dixie and Goose,” who were quite comfortable in their own “storm room.”
“Ready to ride this one out #irma”
On Fox 35 Orlando, Fischer and her roommate Georgia Mott, explained why they brought the horses inside:
“There were a lot of amazing people all over the southeast offering their facilities to evacuees with horses. As most of our friends who own horses moved them to concrete barns we got the idea to bring them inside the house, seeing as how it sits on a hill and is also made of concrete, we figured it was the safest choice.”
On Monday, Georgia Mott expressed relief that the storm had passed by – she wrote:
With a sigh of relief we can say Irma is gone! We got away with no real damage and the yard is high and dry. Needless to say, the horses were happy to get out of the laundry room this morning. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of the kind words, well wishes, and prayers. My prayers go out to those who didn’t fare so well.
