ORANGEVALE, Calif., Feb. 8 (UPI) -- California firefighters had an unusual day at the office when they were called to rescue a horse from a bathtub.

Phantom, a 30-year-old Palomino/Appaloosa living in Orangevale, Calif., with her owner, was "dancing around" the bathtub that doubles as a food trough when she fell in Wednesday and couldn't get back out.


In video of the rescue, firefighters push the tub to the side allowing Phantom to slip out.

"Many hands (and a few tools) got her back on her feet in just a few minutes," the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire Department said in a Facebook post.
