So many friends forwarded this story to me because I have Arabian horses. But none quite like ‘Heir of Temptation’…valued at $150,000.

As the most beautiful of all horse breeds, this guy, aka William, was in a photo clinic on the beach near Santa Barbara when he bolted and swam 2 miles out to sea.

Rescue crews were able to help the horse who was exhausted, had some water in its lungs, but is doing fine. He managed to stay afloat despite having his long tail wrapped around one of its legs for almost three hours. It’s a bit like the rescue in ‘The Black Stallion’ movie.
