Horse rescued from Chester County mud hole is recovering

Cyrus the Clydesdale — a rescue once destined for slaughter — is recovering at a Chester County equine hospital after he apparently was chased into a muddy marsh by a bully draft horse and became stuck.

Cyrus the Clydesdale  — a rescue once destined for slaughter — is recovering at a Chester County equine hospital after he apparently was chased into a muddy marsh by a bully draft horse and became stuck.

"He is loving being pampered," said Penny Parker. "He is enjoying the attention."

Veterinarians are monitoring him to make sure he does not develop pneumonia, for some temporary eye and face paralysis caused from lying on the ground, and and for pain.

"His muscles are just exhausted and he is just uncomfortable," Parker said.

A PayPal account has been set up by the rescue group Horses of New Holland for those who want to contribute to his care, said Parker.
