    Judging by the hat and the coat on the guy driving the horses I'd say he's Amish. Video is probably from pennsylvania? We have a large number of Amish here too, the town of Yoder is an Amish community.

    Reguardless, that's pretty amazing that 4 horses, granted those are BIG horses, that they could even budge a semi like that!

    Brotherhood of Teamsters.
    That's teamwork

    Did you notice; At about 18 seconds one of the horses (the one in the ditch) kicks up a mouse or other rodent, which nearly gets trampled by a center horse, but he makes it across the road eventually.

    How the heck did you see that mouse. You have some good eyes.....That is crazy that those four clydesdales can pull the truck.

    Needless to say the truck must not have been very stuck, if a 6000 lb pull made the difference...

    Saw this on the news last week, I want to say they said it was in TN or somewhere down there. Wasn't in PA that I do remember.
