Sheridan saw the post, and quickly grabbed her kids and her husband, who just happens to be a big Longhorns fan, and told them, “Come on! We are going to help rescue Samson,” said Sheridan.
The Facebook post didn’t just reach Sheridan, however. It reached nearly two dozen people who threw on their boots and raincoats, and rushed over to help the massive animal.
Like Christopher Miller. He was staying with his friend in the Rayford Road area after evacuating his own home because of the storm. Miller told The Dodo that his friend yelled out: "Y'all want to go get a cow out of the mud?"
“No one hesitated,” Miller said. “Everyone got up and immediately grabbed shovels and we hopped in the car.” He said fate, not just floodwaters, must have brought him to help Samson that day.
