Pregnant miniature horse rescued by firefighters

Horse being rescued from muddy ditch by firefightersA pregnant miniature horse has been rescued by firefighters after it got stuck in a ditch filled with watery mud.

When crews arrived on the scene they found six year old Cleo, who is approximately 30 inches high, unable to get out. It’s thought she may have been in the ditch for a couple of days.

Using the specialist animal rescue equipment from Bath Fire Station, crews managed to get a sling around Cleo and working alongside a vet she was assisted out of the ditch by firefighters using lines.

Cleo appeared to be uninjured, just a little cold.
