An elderly horse that escaped from a barn in a rural Ohio town has found its way back to safety after falling into a neighbor's swimming pool and its icy water.

Home-siding workers at the Logan residence of Gail Larkin mounted a rescue Friday morning after they found the 22-year-old horse struggling in the deep end. Larkin told the Logan Daily News the horse had ice crystals on its face and seemed to be in shock.

The workers used Larkin's cane to keep the horse's head above water and guide it to the pool steps where it was able to stumble out. A loud fire truck, summoned to the scene, sent the horse running.

Larkin's neighbor reported later the horse had returned and was being warmed up with blankets.
