A young female horse had a bad start to the week as it became stuck in a muddy ditch in Hengrave, near Bury St Edmunds.
Suffolk Fire and Rescue were called at around 6.16am this morning to reports of a two-year-old mare who was stuck in a wet field.
Two fire engines travelled to the village from Bury St Edmunds and Ixworth.
The horse, named Splodge, was located by fire officers near Mill Road, before 7am, stuck in a water-filled ditch.
Firemen used a combination of man-power, and front-drag reels, to rescue the animal at around 7.23am.
