Officials said that the animal was 80 percent submerged in a mud pit.

As crews struggled to free the animal, some of the other horses circled the rescue area and had to be relocated while some paid no attention to the flurry of activity, which included two hovering television news helicopters.

The 300-year-old farm, which is owned by the Spackman family, is located on portions of the Brandywine Battlefield.

***UPDATE*** details are not yet available, but the horse has been freed after a four-hour effort.
