Dec. 7 (UPI) -- A Minnesota couple harnessed their Belgian draft horses to help a semi truck driver whose vehicle was stuck on an icy driveway.

A video filmed this week in southern Minnesota shows the two burly horses hauling Craig Helgeson's semi truck up the steep and icy driveway belonging to Lizzie and Jacob Hershberger.


The horses were successfully able to get the truck to the top of the hill.

Lizzie Hershberger, who filmed the vehicle, said her husband's horses are used to hauling heavy loads, but the semi was the first truck they had pulled up hill.
