Two such inspirational heroes are father and son duo Chance and Rowdy Ward. These Texas cowboys have been setting an example to the world by showing what true heroism and bravery really look like. They have ridden around the area trying to rescue as many people, horses, and livestock as they can. One particular video that has gone viral shows Rowdy roping a restless and distressed stud colt who was trapped in his pen. As Rowdy tried to keep his own horse composed, he used all his strength to open up the gate to the pen, which had become stuck in the mud under the heavily flooded area.

“This is what we do,” Chance says in the video. “We help livestock. We try to help people.” Everyone is definitely grateful for such selfless people like Chance and Rowdy who are giving their absolute best to make sure not one person or animal is left behind in such an unprecedented flood.
