Firefighters have this afternoon rescued a 26-year-old horse stuck on top of a gate in a Doncaster field.
Cloud, aged 26 had tried to jump the gate on Tickhill Road, Bawtry, but became trapped with front legs on one side and back legs on the other.
The horse was stranded for about half an hour and was becoming distressed, before Adwick firefighters were called and with safety equipment in place, managed to slide the animal to safety.
After being checked over by a vet, the horse was found to be fine.
Station Manager Shayne Tottie, said: “This is another incident which highlights the range of rescues the fire service gets called to respond to.
“The owners did a very good job of keeping the animal calm, but clearly after being stuck for a while, the horse was starting to get quite fed up.
“Our crew put in place safety equipment to make sure the animal didn’t injure itself during the rescue, and thankfully we were able to release the horse from the gate.”
