| A good bit of Canadiana and Aidan Quinn
This is a true story about a father and his daughter who mobilize the residents of a small Canadian town near McBride B.C to rescue two starving horses trapped on a snow covered mountainside.

First discovered by snowmobilers the story is soon picked up by the media and the entire country watches the community pull together, digging a mile long trench through 10 feet deep snow back onto a logging road to rescue the abandoned horses.

This made for TV movie runs every Christmas where I live and I've seen it a couple times now. I think I originally watched it because Aidan Quinn was in it -not sure how or why he made this? but its pretty good all round.

I like the fact that it was obviously filmed in real winter, its cold, it does not look fun for the actors with deep blowing snow, very bad, true BC weather not the fake sunshiny stuff filmed in the summer like most Xmas movies seem to be. The family dynamics portrayed here are good- assume also true- family on the verge of moving, no work at the mill, the vet out of his element in the severe cold. The horses have also been made to look rough, patchy hair, bad hooves. A good bit of Canadiana.
