In Lublin, Poland, a 30-year-old horse fell upside down into a mechanic’s pit in her owner’s garage this week while searching for potatoes to eat. Baska, the mare, followed her nose into the garage and when she stepped on the wooden planks covering the pit, the wood broke and down tumbled Baska – on her back.
According to the Daily Mail, Baska’s 75-year-old owner, Jan Adamiak heard “heartbreaking” neighs coming from the garage and when he went to investigate was shocked to find his beloved mare stuck so tightly she could barely move.
“She was screaming so loudly and desperately that my heart was tearing apart,” Adamiak stated.
The local fire department and neighbors quickly came over to help. They arranged ropes underneath her in order to pull her out and poured water over her body to make it easier for her to be maneuver while lifted out of the tight space. When she is finally safe, the lucky mare only suffered minor injuries to her side.
When interviewed, Adamiak was ecstatic and relieved telling everyone his horse was making a full recovery and seemed to have let her harrowing experience fall quietly into her past. As usual, Baska was roaming the yard looking for food. (Stay away from those potatoes girl!)
