As if 25 inches of snow in Massachusetts wasn't enough to keep the Salem Fire Department Engine 4 firefighters busy enough extinguishing two snowplow fires with limited visibility, Saturday morning a horse managed to get herself stuck under a paddock fence as she rolled around enjoying the soft blanket of white stuff.
Off the firefighters went to Robinson Road where they found the 2,000 pound Belgian cast with her legs wedged underneath the fence. When a horse becomes cast in a position where she can't get her legs underneath herself to stand up, many times a horse will panic as she exhausts or injures herself trying to stand up.
According to the SalemPatch, however the lucky horse was rescued using "horse straps" and a team of firemen who manually pulled her away from the fence where she immediately stood up and proceeded to play in the snow again and of course, look for something to eat.
Many thanks to the Salem Fire Department for a very brave rescue.
