Here’s one of my favorite excerpts from the group chat last week. For context, it helps to know that two of our team members are also volunteer firefighters/emergency responders.
Colleen P.: “Horse Rescued from Pacific: An Arabian horse got spooked on the beach in Santa Barbara, CA and jumped into the Pacific Ocean. The horse swam out for about a mile. It took several official and unofficial rescue boats to bring him safely to shore.”
Matthew W.: You know, I’ve helped rescue horses from dry land and it’s been some of the most exhausting and terrifying work I’ve ever done. I’ve also rescued a person from moving water. I can’t IMAGINE trying to do the combination, that’s crazy crazy.
