Nearly a dozen central Florida firefighters pulled a 2-month-old foal from some deep doo-doo after the little horse fell into a septic tank.

Rescuers spent more than an hour Tuesday using hoses and ropes to save the animal who escaped with his mother Reba from a fenced in area.

When Reba crossed over a septic tank, her weight either broke or displaced the cover and Shooter fell into about 3 feet of foul water.

Shooter was rescued, smelly but unharmed, with only minor cuts.
