Horses, apparently, are very good swimmers.
An Arabian show horse named Air of Temptation was rescued after swimming three miles into the Pacific Ocean on Tuesday, apparently after being spooked during a photo shoot on a California beach.
The seven-year-old stallion was tracked down by a Santa Barbara Harbor Patrol team led by Ryan Kelly, which was very lucky to track down Mr. Temptation.
“It was a real needle-in-a-haystack kind of find,” Kelly told msnbc.com. “He looked like every other bird that was just sitting on the water.”
Check out video from the aftermath of the rescue in the video below.
