CLOVERDALE (CBS SF) — A horse mired in mud along the shore of Lake Sonoma Wednesday afternoon was freed by nearby boaters working together with the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office marine unit, according to a post on the sheriff’s office Twitter page.
The horse was not hurt, the sheriff’s office said.
It is not uncommon for livestock to get stuck in muddy conditions. In April, 18 horses were pulled from a muddy watering hole in northwestern China.
No horsing around! Yesterday evening a horse got stuck in the mud at Lake Sonoma after quenching its thirst. Thank you to the boaters and the Sheriff’s Office Marine Unit for rescuing the horse. The horse was not injured. pic.twitter.com/BF4MpWhmV8
