You never know how your day is going to go – you might end up having one of the best days of your life, or it might go in a completely different direction. The latter happened to Nicole and her daughter while they were walking through a beach. The duo was horseback riding through Australia’s Geelong Beach when the poor horse got stuck in a puddle of mud.

Astro couldn’t get out by himself. The mother-daughter duo weren’t able to pull him out either. Nicole helped her daughter and her horse off to safety, but the mud was beginning to swallow poor Astro and there was the danger of incoming tide as well. They called professionals, but the rescue was really hard. Thankfully, after nearly three hours of effort, they managed to free the horse. He is doing fine now.
