Nicole Graham, a mother from Melbourne, Australia, recently went for a leisurely horse ride along the beach with her daughter. However, the afternoon quickly shifted from a relaxing outing to a living nightmare. Graham's horse, an 18-year-old steed named Astro, ventured into unexpectedly treacherous mud and was followed by her daughter's horse before she could warn them.
Graham was able to get herself, her daughter, and her daughter's smaller horse free, but Astro remained stuck.
(1/10) - Graham spent 3 hours clinging to the horse as he continued to struggle. At over 1,000 lbs, attempts to free the horse before help arrived only resulted in both becoming more stuck.
