Jan. 25 (UPI) -- A group of snowmobilers helped rescue a horse that was stranded in the snow on a mountain in Idaho.
Miller and his friends brought food and water to the horse who was trapped 7700 feet up for five days due to extreme weather conditions, according to KBOI.
The group cared for the horse until rescue crews were able to fly in a helicopter to airlift the horse from the mountain by attaching a rope to the horse's harness.
"We never would have gotten the horse out of there," President of Idaho Horse Rescue Robert Bruno told KTVB. "Without those guys, that horse would be dead in a few days I suppose."
Idaho Horse Rescue expects the horse to make a full recovery and said crews managed to get to it just in time.
"He's is poor condition, he definitely wouldn't have lasted another week or even a few days," Bruno said. "We pulled a rabbit out of our hats on this one. It was a miracle."
A white horse had been seen stranded with the brown horse police managed to rescue, but it's current whereabouts are unknown.
"Pilots have flown over the top of them, however there was a period of time where nobody was able to check on them due to weather conditions which made it impossible to fly," Valley County Sheriff's office said. "The brown horse has been sighted several times and we can not confirm that the white horse is deceased, he may be down in the trees, as that is where he was when we made contact with them last Sunday."
Once the rescued horse is healthy enough it will be rehabilitated and trained to be around humans by Alex Owen Horsemanship.
