November 5, 2007: Horse in the mud
Since we missed last Friday - here is a nice story for you. I guess this horse (named King) had a pretty interesting day. He got stuck in the mud, chained up, and then drug out of the hole. It took four attempts to get him out.

Nice one, Oafed!

Good to see a happy ending. I imagine the horse must have been a bit panicky and so those rescuers were risking a nasty bite or kick there, bless 'em.

Looks like it'll need to be hosed off before we cook it.

From the saddle I take it that some gaping idiot rode him into that?

despite the many attempts it took to get the dear out; at least it was cheaper than a day at the spa..

Is it me, or does it look like the guy in the background of the last shot is taking a leak?

Welcome Skylight! No need to feel awkward.

I bet that poor horse was exhausted when finally freed....the guy in red was so happy he had to take a leak?!... Might he be the rider? only non emergency person...

Artex!!! You have to fight the sadness, Artex! NOOOOooooo!

Just because there is a saddle on the horse does not mean someone was riding it at the time it got stuck in the mud. How else do you propose they hook a chain to the horse?

I was feeling left out, so I Googled "Artex sadness" and see this thread is already at the top for it. Jeez. Just an hour has passed and already at the top of Google.

Ah, that's because I misspelled it. Here they say it's "Artax."

I worked out what you meant almost immediately, but it did occur to me that I hadn't noticed the horse had the same name as a ceiling cover product in the UK when I read it. All is now explained

Flashback, these pics, without the saddle, could have been taken years ago at our ranch.

The guy in the red shirt got the horse stuck and had to go stand in the corner.

It's also possible the horse bolted and that's how it came to be stuck in the mud with a saddle on.

Maybe the horse didn't want to be up sh*t creek without a saddle!
