One of two horses found stranded on a remote mountain in Valley County has been rescued.

There’s a video posted on Facebook by one of the rescuers showing the helicopter drop a rope to rescuers on the ground who attach it to the tranquilized horse in a sling. The helicopter then carries the horse off the mountain.

Idaho Horse Rescue is now taking care of the horse, which is expected to fully recover. But had they not rescued him when they did, he wouldn’t have made it.

Unfortunately, there is no sign of the other horse. He may be down closer to the trees where they saw him before, but they aren’t very hopeful since the horses never separated before and as close as they were they don’t think they would unless there was no other choice.
