Fortunately, fire crews were on hand.

Crews from Spalding, Grantham and Long Sutton made it to Langary Gate Road in Gedney Hill, south of Spalding, after being called at 5.45pm on Saturday.

The firefighters used animal strops and the help of a farmer's teleporter ( a cross between a tractor and a fork-lift) to rescue the horse.
