Horse Rescued After Becoming Trapped On Beach
A beautiful bay gelding called Astro is recovering well after becoming trapped up to his neck in mud that was like quicksand whilst out on a ride on Avalon Beach, Greelong Australia.

Astro's owner Nicole Graham stayed with him as he continued to sink deeper into the mud, until emergency services were able to attend.

Astro was eventually pulled free with the use of a harness and tractor moments before the incoming tide reached them, much to the relief of owner Nicole Graham who had stayed alongside her horse during this terrible ordeal which was achieved thanks to the support, hard work and patience of both the owner and the emergency services.
