A horse who ended up in her neighbour’s pool after a fence blew down in a storm in Spokane, Washington, had to be helped out of her predicament by rescuers.
Spokane Valley firefighters spent the morning making up steps to enable the 15-year-old mare to make a dignified retreat, after the mare refused to use the pool steps to get out.
The pool had been winterized and covered, and when she tore through the liner, she made a hole in the bottom of the pool. This helped drain out the water, as well as helping prevent Missy from getting too cold.
Missy’s owner Jennie Delaney said she had only a few scratches around her face from the ordeal.
