In an amazing rescue on a Cadia Road property this morning Fuzz, the two-year-old Welsh Mountain pony, was rescued from the bottom of a deep well.
Veterinary surgeon Kate Burnheim stood knee deep in freezing water at the bottom of the well as she sedated and calmed the pony before he was winched to safety by a crane with the help of NSW Fire and Rescue.
The pony was found in the well at 7am after his owner couldn't find him during her regular check before leaving for work.
Orange Fire and Rescue Station Officer Chris Saunders told the CWD the rescue was a"good result all round" due to the co-ordinated efforts of a local crane company, veterinary surgeons and NSW Fire and Rescue.
Fuzz was treated for a cut on the leg and is expected to make a full recovery.
