Just another different day at work!

Cold outside, windy, and hoping we didn't have too busy of a day but around 10:00 am, Matt Goodson, a local mail carrier, called the PD and said that there was a horse in the ditch, wrapped up in barbed wire, and didn't look like it was doing very well. Everyone at the PD went to the scene and you can see for yourself; it took everyone. Thank goodness for the call, us being able to get him up, and the loving care his owner gave him when we got him to the barn. May you add many years to your 18 years Big Boy Mars. Creativity played a big roll in saving you buddy.
