    Default Horse Outruns Train - On the Train Track!

    As you can see at the end, the horse does eventually leave the train track.

    wow, that video clip was obnoxiously done. They showed it 15 times (it seemed) before finally showing the horse getting off the track. Can we say "sensationalism?" The music was awful too.

    Glad the horse got out of the way though!

    While I'm glad the horse got off the track and survived Whaaat a crappy video!

    I had a friend who had his a stallion and 18 month old colt escape his property several years ago. Three days later the stallion came home. He continued to look for the colt. He was sure that someone had found him but didn't turn him in. He was finally contacted by someone who works for the railroad. Seems the colt was hit by a train...probably the first night he disappeared. It wasn't pretty...and he was just lucky that the railroad didn't claim any damages.

    That was literally the most obnoxious video ive ever watched. Did we NEED (or want!?) to see the same 3 second clip 27 times? Nope, I didnt. The music was terrible too.

    Other than that...it seemed like the horse was not "out-running" the train so much as the train slowed down til the horse got off the tracks. I could be mistaken though because I couldnt even tell which "speed" the video was supposed to be at.
