This is a bad "head" day

We've all heard of bad "hair" days. This is a bad "head" day for a horse. This poor filly got her head stuck in a tree for real. It is not photo-shopped! Read on . . . the article follows . . .
This young filly needed to be freed from the tree after curiosity got the better of her. The horse, "Gracie," was unable to free itself and could have been in danger were it not for a passer-by who came to the rescue after he heard the horse whinnying. Jason Harschbarger, a neighbor in the town of Pullman, West Virginia, USA, arrived at the scene, which resembled the image of Winnie the Pooh getting stuck in the honey tree. Mr Harschbarger collected his tools and was able to carefully set the horse free by using a chainsaw to slowly cut the wood around its neck. Fortunately for Gracie, she was able to escape her ordeal with only a few minor injuries and, according to Mr Harschbarger, is on the road to recovery. Following his rescue operation, Mr Harschbarger told a local television station: "She has a few cuts on her face and ear."

It remains unclear why Gracie put her head into the gap.


  1. Oh, poor baby! That makes me want to cry! Glad to hear she was rescued with only minor booboos.

  2. oh my gosh! is she alright


  3. Yes, "Gracie" was all right, according to the article.

  4. Haha! That's so hilarious! glad she's okay. Any horse could'nt get any serious injury from that.
