Six horses have been rescued from raging flood water near Hawick in the Scottish Borders.
The animals, belonging to Debbie and Nikki Grant, were left stranded in their field on Saturday when the nearby River Teviot burst its banks.
Despite the effort of numerous firefighters and boats, they were unable to move the horses.
Local farmer James Manners and huntsman Johnny Kelly then took their tractor into the field and managed to tie a strap around one of the horses.
After some initial resistance the horses followed the tractor back onto dry land. All six of the horses are now safe and well.
