FILE PHOTO: Central Mason Fire responded to a report of a horse stuck in an abandoned well off Rivendell Road in 2013 and found an 800-pound mare named Magic that had fallen into the well. The well hole was only 4 feet by 4 feet wide and was completely filled with water. Rescuers had to double wrap a 2-1/2-inch fire hose around Magic's body to pull the horse out of the well.
