On Feb 2nd, a Clydesdale horse fell through the ice in a Delaware Creek.

Rescue teams were called to Cozy Quarter Farm in New Castle; firefighters were able to pull the horse out with a roll and a push. The horse, Bubba, reportedly could hardly keep its head above the water. Moreover, veterinarians covered Bubba in blankets to raise his core temperature.

The horse was returned to the stables after regaining the ability to walk an hour later.
