We've all been there. You're exercising, pushing yourself to new limits, when all of a sudden you've lost all energy and begin to feel incredibly weak. As I grow older, I've come to learn that energy comes and goes. You'll have good days and bad ones.

For Cupcake the horse, she was having one of those bad days when she began to sink and eventually fell over into a mix of muddy water.

Lucky for Cupcake, the firefighters from South Metro Fire Rescue were quick to arrive on the scene.

As she began to regain her strength, it was only a matter of time before Cupcake, with the aid of rescue responders, was able to free herself from the mud.
