Horse Rescued From Swimming Pool: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"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.
