Whoa, stud! This amorous stallion was hot to trot after spotting some mares in the next field.

In his eager attempts to reach the objects of his desire, the stallion got stuck on a gate at an RSPB nature reserve and had to be winched to freedom
Inspector Tina Nash said: ‘The horse was trying to get to the mares on the other side… and obviously thought he could clear the 4ft gate.
‘But it seems this lovely lad isn’t the greatest showjumper and got himself stuck halfway.’
The Kent Fire and Rescue Service were called and were able to rescue the skewbald horse by fitting straps underneath his belly and carefully winching him up and off the gate.
The stallion was seen by specialists for some injuries, but is expected to make a full recovery.
And Inspector Nash had some advice for the next time he is feeling amorous: ‘If he’d have spent a little more time looking and investigating, he’d have realise that he could have walked along the fence a little further, he could have just trotted around to see his lady friends.’
A Kent Fire & Rescue Service spokeswoman said: ‘Kent Fire and Rescue Service was called to rescue a horse on Mead Wall near Rochester on 10 August.
The stallion was seen by specialists for some injuries, but is expected to make a full recovery
‘One fire engine, along with the animal rescue unit, was sent to the scene.
‘Crews used specialist equipment to lift the horse off a metal gate.
‘Animal rescue emergencies are as important as any other for Kent Fire and Rescue Service.
‘The Animal Rescue Unit is made up of specially trained firefighters, who have a passion for helping all creatures great and small.’
