This is 18-year-old Eileen Eagle Bears and her trusty steed, Mr. Smudge. And to one truck driver who found himself stranded on a snowy Manitoba highway, they're heroes.
On Monday night, Eagle Bears was watching a local traffic camera from her home 30 minutes south of Brandon, Manitoba when she saw a truck stranded on the highway.
When she arrived, the trucker was asleep. She tapped on the window and the driver was surprised, but grateful, to see someone on a horse with something warm.
So she returned in the evening with more coffee and a thermos full of hamburger and potato stew.
Meanwhile, Eileen's mom, Heather Eagle Bears, watched her arrive at the truck on the traffic cam. As did dozens of people who saw Heather's Facebook post about her daughter and followed along.
As for Eagle Bears, she's pretty overwhelmed by the reaction. "I am so surprised," she said. "I didn’t expect any reaction. It was a shock when I got back and my mom had posted it."
