PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) — Pueblo County sheriff's officials say a 4-year-old pregnant mare is doing well after being rescued from a 7-foot hole.

Sheriff's officials tell Colorado Springs television station KKTV (http://bit.ly/tMGpBE) that the mare apparently stepped into the hole, which her owners were digging to install a faucet to water the horses. Rescuers used ditch maintenance equipment from the county road and bridge department to lift the mare out of the hole Tuesday.
