A family in southern Minnesota showcased some literal horsepower when a semi couldn't get up an icy hill last week. 

It happened outside of Canton, a small town southeast of Rochester near the Iowa border.

The snow-covered driveway to their farm proved too icy for a semi, so Lizzie Hershberger's family hooked two of their Belgian horses to the front while her husband, Jacob Hershberger, guided them to the top of the hill. 

The video has gone viral across the country and has more than 700,000 views.

Belgian horses are the most common type of working horse in America, although Budweiser's Clydesdale commercials might lead one to think otherwise.
