COLLEGE STATION, Texas (KBTX) - It was a very happy reunion Tuesday for one Southeast Texas family and their horse after Hurricane Harvey. Peanut a 14-year old horse was hurt during the flood and later rescued.

The horse was reunited with his family at the Texas A&M Large Animal Hospital after doctors at the A&M Vet School nursed him back to health.

Camera crews and the hosts of DIY's 'Texas Flip and Move' were there to capture the reunion. The show is helping the family rebuild their home after it received major damage in the storm.

"This has been such a blessing meeting these people and all they've done," said Scott Venable of Bevil Oaks. "She's going to trailer him home and they're going to help us out with some other ways too -- at the house."

"The weekend that Peanut came we had 50 other horses also come rescued from the hurricane," explained Michelle Coleman, DVM, a Texas A&M assistant professor of Large Animal Internal Medicine. "We were able to accommodate all those horses. We had the space, the manpower the help to provide the medical needs that they required."

The family loaded up Peanut Tuesday afternoon to take him back home to Southeast Texas. The season premier of 'Texas Flip and Move' is on Oct. 6 on DIY.

A release date for this episode hasn't been announced.
