Mr. Higgins, the blind and arthritic horse, is one lucky fello!
The 31-year-old horse fell over a hillside in Penn Township, Westmoreland County, was rescued early Tuesday evening.
But the horse is so beloved that his owners, the county's animal rescue team, and firefighters all rushed to help get Mr. Higgins back on his horse shoes!
The animal was so far over a hill that crane with an attached sling was needed to pull it to safety.
The rescue effort lasted about an hour. And dear Mr. Higgins is back in action… kinda.
