ORANGEVALE, Calif. (AP) - Firefighters in Northern California rescued a horse that got stuck in an outdoor bathtub.

Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District Capt. Michelle Eidam says the horse was dancing around in her stall to protect the bathtub used as her food trough when she suddenly fell in Wednesday.

The horse, named Phantom, was stuck in the bathtub for about 25 minutes with her feet up in the air. Her owner saw the horse fall and called the fire department.

Between firefighters and the owner's family, they were able to prop the bathtub on its side and pull Phantom forward onto her feet.

Phantom, a Palomino/Appaloosa mix, was not injured.
