Metro Fire crews attempted to revive a collapsed horse late Monday morning in Orangevale.
Firefighters said the horse had fallen sometime overnight.
The horse was unable to stand on its own and had to be euthanized by a veterinarian.
With the assistance from a mechanical lift, Opal the 16 y/o draft horse is now on her feet, still supported by lift. pic.twitter.com/Eyp6qDrTIB
