Say Neigh: Rescuers try to save horse trapped in 40-foot ravine

WP_20130528_010REDMOND — Animal rescue crews are attempting to rescue a horse that fell down a 40-foot ravine, King County Sheriff’s Office reported.

The horse apparently got out of its stable Sunday at the Saddle Rock Stable in the 24000 block of 115th Street in Redmond. It was walking  and fell down an embankment, officers said.

Investigators are planning to wrap a fire hose around the animal to help it scale the steep ravine. The horse reportedly has food and water, and has been given pain medication.

The pony, a 4-year-old named Gemma, escapes often, its owners said.
