Tiny Thumbalina Escapes from Ike’s Flooding

Thumbalina, the world’s smallest horse, had to be evacuated from her barn in the St. Louis areas when flooding occurred in the wake of Hurricane Ike. Within minutes, water from the flood was nearly 3 feet deep around their barn, with strong currents causing additional problems. Thumbalina’s owner, Mark Goessling reported it took him several tries to reach the farm, due to to road closings. Luckily his 67-year old mother was on-site and she braved the flood waters to make sure Thumbalina was safe.

Happily, the impromptu adventure ended safely. Here’s the whole story!
