GOOCHLAND COUNTY, Va. -- Firefighters rescued a horse that was stuck in the mud in Goochland County Wednesday night.

According to a Facebook post by Goochland County Fire and Rescue, they were called to help with a horse who was trapped in mud between two barn doors.

Officials said the horse had been stuck in the mud for about an hour, and was visibly cold and exhausted when they arrived.

The horse was sedated by Dr. Katie Huffman with Little Hawk Farm so the first responders could put a harness around it and pull it from the mud.

After the sedation wore off, officials said the horse was helped its feet and didn’t appear to be injured.
