Pony rescued

Hooty was checked by a vet following the rescue

Fire and Rescue NSW crews rescued a miniature pony from a sticky situation on January 24.

Crews responded to reports that the pony, Hooty, was stuck upside down on his back in a trench at a property on Coorara Rd, Lisarow.

Firefighters came up with an extrication plan and requested a specialist Tech Rescue crew along with assistance from local Rural Fire crews and the Volunteer Rescue Association.

Crews worked to dig a V shape in the surrounding dirt.

Then with the help of a tractor, the four-year-old mini pony, Hooty, was carefully released.

A vet was also on the scene to check and assess the pony.
