A pony was rescued out of a 12 ft hole in North Wales by a mechanical digger at a farm in Whitford on February 22. The video was posted by a Facebook user and showed the white pony named, Flo peeking out from the crevice as the machine scrapped away soil and then she was running free on the ground. According to media reports, the rescuers spent nearly 20 minutes preparing the ground outside the hole. The short clip also showed the digger taking two delicate scoops of sand before the young horse climbed out. 

Flo is reportedly owned by a pony-breeder Rosie Wilson and has also won medals in pony shows. He was staying at Jo Swift's farm in Whitford, Flintshire when the pair had noticed that Flo was missing and went to check. However, since the pony was not found after searching the field, Jo reportedly heard the pony's whinnies coming from a deep hole. With the help of farmers and Thomas Plant, a local man with the digger, the group managed to rescue the pony.
