William Shakespeare wrote in his play “Cymbeline” the line ‘O for a horse with wings’.
But on Sunday, a Liberty, Texas horse named ‘Old Lady’ probably wished she had wings.
‘Old Lady’ who is 27-years-old, got out of her fenced area and into a neighbor’s septic tank.
The horse’s rear got stuck so firefighters were called to help her out.
The confined area kept them from bringing equipment in.
So they put a strap under the horse’s rear, and like a tug-o-war, they pulled ‘old lady’ out of the septic tank.
After resting for a few minutes the horse went and got a bath.
‘Old Lady’ was stuck in the septic tank for about 90 minutes.
