Horse rescued from not-quite-frozen pond

A horse found itself in some cold water near 1050 in the New Marion area, when a pond was snow covered and the horse walked out on it. The New Marion Fire Department was called to help and after about a half hour of breaking ice, the horse was able to walk out on its own. This Amish family helped with the process holding the horse’s head with a cable attached to keep it above water until it could be brought to safety. There were no injuries reported.
