AMITY TOWNSHIP, Pa. (CBS) — A horse is recovering after getting stuck in a frigid creek in Berks County. Pictures show the horse, named “Smalls,” after it wandered into the creek in Amity Township on Wednesday morning.

It took a few hours and the help of a backhoe to finally pull the animal back to dry land.

We’re told Smalls is improving and is expected to be OK.
