Today Amador Fire crews from station 116 went down to Laughton Ranch Boarding & Training to visit Ranger and his family. Dr Vicki Smalley informed us that Ranger still has a long road ahead, but is starting to recover nicely and is in good spirits. We would like to once again thank everyone involved for for all the help and great teamwork they provided that day. ... See MoreSee Less
This afternoon Amador Fire crews along with Sutter Creek Fire District were called to the report of a horse stuck in a mineshaft. Upon arrival crews found the horse in approximately 6-8 feet of water. Crews quickly used portable pumps to remove as much water as they could. With the assistance of Lynch's Automotive’s crane and Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center, crews were able to sedate and secure the horse before removing him. Once removed, the veterinarians worked tediously to stabilize the horses injuries. The horse was then transported to a local vet and equestrian center. We would all like to wish Ranger a quick and speedy recovery. ... See MoreSee Less
Hope to see an update! Because this damn horse will be on my mind until I know it's ok! Lol
Leaving it open with a small ramp for critters to climb out would be safer. The horse would have avoided the open hole.
How was he able to get in there? Was this left open?
Special thanks to Bobbi Laughton for everything she did to help. As always she is amazing!! 🐴❤️ Jimandbobbi Laughton
Hope the open shaft gets covered so nothing else can fall in there.
Great rescue Amador Fire and Sutter Creek Fire! Also Lynch’s Automotive and Loomis Basin Equine Medical Center!
Rebecca Larsen Pittman, Marykatheryn Pittman Derr, Chad was working this weekend and was on scene. Only his arms and fingers show in the pictures, lol.

Thanks to everyone that help this horse out of a very bad situation 💕
Great job by everyone involved !
Oh my goodness! Thank goodness for quick work and helping hands!
I second that ... Great job to all that helped that poor horse
We also had a colt that fell into an old cistern. We had to get a crane truck and several of our local cowboys and a local vet. It all turned out ok.
This is so sad how did that horse get down there in the first place, update please
Great team work. Hope the horse will be OK. Maybe that hole should be boarded up so it doesn't happen again.
Great team work!
Good work all of you. Not an easy job
Well done everyone ! ! !
Oh poor Ranger....GREAT job guys....THANK YOU
