Kerry C. posted on Facebook on Saturday: Only In Texas. This horse is either very well trained or scared to death. We passed this truck hwy 59, past Lufkin. I’m all for a go fund me account for the horse so we can get a proper trailer. Lol"
One report says the truck was traveling at 70mph.
KHOU-11 reports that the pickup driver pulled into a Whataburger and was later caught on camera getting questioned by a trooper. Apparently, the horse's reins were being held through the back window.
ABC-13 is reporting Police in that the driver was on his way to work. The driver said his truck that can pull a trailer for the horse wouldn't start, so he did this instead. And, according to police, there isn't anything illegal about the transportation so the driver was let go.
By the way, the horse is reportedly extremely well-trained and worth $15,000.
