Two Clydesdales are safe after rescue workers saved them from a frozen lake in Pennsylvania.
According to WNEP, the horses, named Gunther and Wilhelm, escaped from their home at Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm in Hamilton Township early Saturday. They eventually found the frozen lake and walked onto the ice, then fell into the frigid water, the station reported.
Rescuers were able to save the horses by cutting a trench into the ice using chainsaws, WNEP reported. Officials then led the horses back onto dry land.
The horses are back at home, where they are receiving treatment from Cross River Veterinarians, Quiet Valley said in a Facebook post updated Sunday morning.
"Wilhelm is being treated for some superficial bumps and bruises," the post said. "Gunther is looking fine and happy. Both are eating well and enjoying the sunlight. Thank you all for your support. It looks like both will make a full recovery."
