Using specialist animal rescue equipment, ‘Whatty’ was removed from the sticky situation and reunited with its grateful owner.

A local vet was requested at the scene to check over the large animal, but Island Echo understands Whatty is back on his feet and eating.

Nice to know those kind lads got the horse out safely. Lots of pet dogs are falling off of cliffs and horses stuck in mud and all helped by the firemen.

I think the owner needs to take a long look in the mirror, the owner should be experienced enough to know how wet the ground is this winter..
