Super photo by Carol this morning covering a horse stuck in the mud. Rescuers were successful in getting the horse out the mud.
Daniel Ramburg with the Hanover fire department secured a strap around Sky, a 2100 pound Suffolk Punch, draft horse before he was lifted from a mud bog on the Miller Farm in the 14000 block of Old Pueblo Rd. Friday morning. The horse got buried up to his back in the mud overnight and was found by Rex Miller when he didn't show up to the barn to eat at 6:00 am early Friday. The horse is owned by Miller's daughter and son-in -law, Carl and Elizabeth Evans. They estimated he was in the cold mud for five to six hours. Randy's Towing donated the truck and operators for the rescue.
