Astro, that weighs 900 lbs, had obtained stuck in the mud on an afternoon ride in Melbourne, Australia. Nicole’s child Paris had joined her on her ride and her horse had actually also got stuck. Nicole was able to free Paris’ horse but not the bigger horse Astro.
Efforts to totally free Astro caused him to get stuck much more, so all Nicole can do was try and also maintain him calm until help arrived.
Paris had the ability to call for help and also Astro was sedated while a harness was connected to him so a tractor can pull him out.
Nicole claimed it took 3 hours for rescuers to draw her horse to safety.
Fire lieutenant Roger Buckle, that aided to pull the horse to security, explained the mud like quick sand.
Fortunately Astro suffered just dehydration and also some muscle soreness.
Thank goodness they were able to rescue him. I’m so pleased there was a pleased closing and even more wonderful rides. Are we simply going to ignore the
truth that this is 100 %the same point that happened to Artax in The Never End Story? Watch the rescue in video below:
