The free app, called Zello Walkie Talkie, lets your phone communicate as a two-way radio so long as you have a network or Wi-Fi connection.

They brought Goose and soon-to-be-mom Dixie into the makeshift shelter Saturday night and spent the rest of the weekend in Mott and Fischer’s laundry room.

“It sounded like my house was about to blow away. It was really bad all night,” Mott said. “We had a tornado right down the road from us.”

The hurricane left the pasture flooded, and while the barn was intact and remains standing, Mott said things left lying in the yard could have flown and hit the horses if they had been kept outside.

Goose and Dixie were brought back outside Monday morning, where conditions are still windy but have calmed down since the weekend.

“We were pretty lucky,” she said.
