Horse Rescued From Swimming Pool: Video
"A horse is expected to be OK after being rescued from a Mesa swimming pool Saturday.
According to the Mesa Fire Department, a veterinarian tranquilized the horse so that crews could get it out of the pool safely."
A horse is a magnificent and graceful creature; I could watch videos of horses horsing around all day long.
You can lead a horse to a swimming pool, but don`t expect it to swim gracefully in such a small pool of water.
This hapless horse tumbled into a swimming pool, but the heroic Mesa firefighters got it out of the pool safely.
This task was a little bit more difficult than coaxing a cat to come down from a tree, but all in a day`s work for these first responders.
The horse is doing well after his ordeal.
