A horse needed rescuing after becoming stuck while attempting to leap over a stable door.
Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service sent three crews to free the animal from High Town Green in Rattlesden, near Bury St Edmunds, on Saturday.
A fire service spokesman said: “It was a horse stuck over the bottom half of a stable door.
“It appears it tried to jump out of its stable.”
The crews, who came from Stowmarket and Bury St Edmunds, used cutting equipment to free the trapped mare.
