Firefighters in Medicine Hat Come to Clydesdale’s Rescue
In early May 2017, firefighters in Medicine Hat, Alberta, received a call to help a Clydesdale horse that had fallen through the floor of a trailer while in transport. With the help of lifting bags, cribbing, and shoring equipment they were able to lift and stabilize the trailer to allow the horse to stand up and exit on its own. There were four other horses in the trailer and all have been reported as safe. This is a timely reminder to check the floorboards of your trailer before hauling your horses anywhere this spring and summer.
