Pony Rescue - Lisarow

Published: 24 Jan 2021 02:30pm

Fire and Rescue NSW responded this afternoon to reports of a miniature pony 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 the 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 named "Hooty" was carefully released.

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