Horse doing well after being buried by blizzard in Rush

RUSH – The Colorado Horse Rescue Network said an older horse is doing well after she was buried in a giant snow drift during Wednesday’s blizzard.

We’re told the horse, named Bernadette, made her way into the storm after 80 mph winds opened a barn door. The drift ended up completely covering Bernadette, requiring her rescue.

People at the rescue had to cut her out of her blanket because it was frozen solid and dug for three hours before she was freed.

The video was recorded after she was partially dug out.
