    Default Amazing Photos! Horse Rescued from Muddy Death.

    Looking at the photos, this horse would have been a goner if not for the rescue.

    Excerpt:

    A horse stranded in a muddy pond was rescued from certain death after firefighters spent more than three hours pulling him on to dry land.

    The 27-year-old gelding, named Jeremy, was trapped up to his neck in water after wading into thick, cloying mud.

    Looks like everyone is exhausted, not just Jeremy!

    Not your typical call to the fire department either, but glad it turned out ok.


    I'm happy that my horse doesn't like mud...

    That's a lot for any horse, let alone an older guy. Hope he is doing ok!

    Oh my - and all he had on his head was a thin nylon halter, poor guy.

    The idiotic comments, lacking in human kindness, must come from city folks
    who have never had the opportunity to benefit from God's kingdom. Partly why the Hunting ban went through. The masses live in the cities.

    I feel like it wasn't too long before Jeremy got a bath...
    Poor guy, glad he made it out okay!
