Preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse or Rapture....whichever comes first.
Better to die on your feet, than to live on your knees.
Just like humans, guess there's some stupid ones out there.

We can all get in places we shouldn't be...lucky for this horse! Could have gotten excited and had a broken neck.

Nature at work, without human intervention, that horse probably would have died right there. Glad to hear it worked out.

The eternal grand plan of Mother Nature includes massive and constant quantities of prolonged pain, starvation, dehydration, suffering, violent, and usually agonizing death for all the wild beasts of the Earth.
That's just the way it is.

It can be a heart-wrenching experience to try and help an animal that needs helping while at the same time they try to evade or fight you from doing so.
I can think of two similar experience as the horse:
1- One time we had a Caterpillar road grader that we used infrequently and left it parked in a pasture. I had a young calf, about 300 pounds, that for some reason poked his head in the steering linkage, and turned it just a certain way at the same time. His head was trapped because he couldn't figure out how to undo what he had done. He was too strong for a couple of us to manhandle and turn his head and "unlock" him. Lucky we noticed him. We decided the easiest thing to do was to take some of the steering linkage apart and he came right out.
2- Another time I took the hood off of a tractor to service and found a deceased barn cat trapped under the metal fuel injector lines on top of the engine. Apparently he had crawled up there and made a few twists and turns within the lines and couldn't figure out how to back out. Poor guy.
