Horse rescued in Hamilton after falling into pond

Posted: Updated:
After nearly two hours, first responders were able to rescue a horse that had fallen into an icy pond in Hamilton.

The 1,800-pound horse, named Moon, had gotten loose early Saturday and was wandering through a swamp when it broke through the ice.

A couple and their son were out for a walk when they heard a noise, spotted the horse and dialed 911.

“We walked to the end of the road and came back and heard a sound,” said eyewitness Amy Cavilla.

Moon has a few bruises and was cold when she was finally able to get out of the water, but veterinarians said that she’s expected to be okay.

“She was able to stand and maintain her balance and walk into the barn. She is just freezing cold after two hours in the cold,” said an official on the scene.
