A horse who escaped its enclosure was rescued early Monday after falling into its owners’ pool in Penngrove, reports The Press Democrat.

The horse, named Spirit, is about 20 years old and never escaped its enclosure. Spirit then wandered onto the deck and fell into the pool.

Since the owners planned to get rid of the pool anyway, firefighters used a chainsaw to cut into the wraparound wooden deck and cut the sides of the pool to create a makeshift door. Then they constructed a ramp so the horse could walk out of the pool.
