Nicole Graham was with her horse Astro on the beach in Melbourne, Australia, when the horse started to sink into the soft and boggy sand after a tide change. Her daughter was able to call for help as she stayed by the horse’s side and held his head up out of the mud.
It was acting just like quicksand for this 1,100 pound horse, and with the rising tide, time was not on their side. A lot of risk still remained after a vet, helicopter, and heavy machinery arrived on scene to help, but a happy ending awaiting them all. See it below! 🙂
