This horse was spooked to say the least.
William, a white Arabian horse, was at a Santa Barbara County photo shoot when something went wrong.
The Carpenteria Fire Department, along with state lifeguards and a SBC search and rescue helicopter spotted the horse going for a swim.
TWO MILES OFFSHORE!
Rescuers caught up with the stallion and placed floaties under his neck so his head would stay above water.
The entire process two two and a half hours to get William back on dry land.
That definitely makes a day at work more interesting!
