Firefighters helped Zoe, a 34-year-old horse onto her feet earlier today after she struggled to get up.

On arrival, crews from Halstead and our animal rescue unit in Chelmsford reported that the large horse was laying in her stable unable to stand. 

Crews used specialist equipment to move her outside of the stable and used a hiab to lift Zoe back onto her feet by 2:08pm.
