The incredible moment a horse revived its stricken stablemate that was about to be put down was caught on camera.
The shire horse named Beatrice was found collapsed in her stable after suffering equine colic or severe abdominal pain.
Due to her sheer weight and size, the longer the mare remained grounded for the more at risk she was of succumbing to fatal organ failure.
Owners Donald MacIntyre and wife Jane Lipington and four farm workers desperately tried to stand the one tonne creature up but she was too heavy.
They even used a strap tied to a tractor to try and pull the limp horse to safety but that didn't work either.
