Air of Temptation had a new element of temptation in mind........
A search and rescue team save William, a 7-year-old Arabian show horse, after he swam for 3 miles in the ocean.
The beautiful grey stallion had been part of a photo shoot with other horses suddenly bolted in to the water apparently frightened by the sound of the crashing waves. .
The Santa Barbara Harbor Patrol, Carpenteria-Summerland Fire Water Rescue, and California State Parks set out to find the stallion and hopefully bring him back to shore safely.
His owner, Mindy Peters, a movie producer, told Huffington Post that he had never been swimming in his life.
"Horses can swim, but not well,” she told HuffPo. Peters was driving when she learned about her sea horse. She said William is worth about $100,000 to $150,000.
It was like trying to find a needle in haystack but miraculously they found his head poking up above the water. The rescue took two hours to get to dry-land and at moments was scary for the rescue team.
“Some of the grunts and noises he was making along the way -- we weren’t sure how he was doing,” Kelly said. “We weren’t sure if he had other problems. He was making noise, thrashing around and other times he’d be completely still.”
One of the firefighters held his head above water and reassured him, Kelly said.
A veterinarian was waiting for William and guided him to a trailer and William is now recuperating.
