STROUDSBURG — Crews have rescued two horses that escaped from their Pennsylvania farm and became trapped in an icy lake.

Gunther and Wilhelm are two 15-year-old Clydesdales that live at Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm near Stroudsburg. WNEP-TV reports the pair got loose Saturday morning and wandered out onto a frozen lake where they fell through the ice.

Rescue crews say they had to create a trench using chain saws to walk the horses out of the lake. The crews were able to guide the horses to land where veterinarians helped dry off and warm up.

Quiet Valley Living Historical Farm says the horses do not have any broken bones, and started eating as soon as they recovered from the cold. Officials say veterinarians will be monitoring the animals.
