Emergency crews and a vet had to be called to help a Shetland pony that got stuck in a hole on a North-east farm.
Two appliances with 11 firefighters from Peterhead attended the incident in the Inverugie area at around 2.20pm.
A spokeswoman for the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service said: “They supported the pony with some strops, supporting its weight until the vet arrived.
“Both feet were stuck in a hole.
“The vet sedated the pony and got the feet out and it was fine.”
The fire service left the scene at 3.10pm.
