We have seen it recommended by a gentleman who has had much experience in the matter, that when a horse has fallen from the slippery state of the ground, the readiest method of enabling him to rise is to put an old rug or carpet under his fore feet, and he will be able to get up at once Many horses are seriously strained by their efforts to rise on slippery ground, and this is most particularly the case with those of high spirit, and frequently those of greatest value are so frightened by the fall that greater injuries to themselves, as well as danger to those in the carriage, ensue from vain efforts to get them up than by the fall Let the driver leap down at once, and assist the horse to get in position to get up, at the same time placing the rug, carpet, or even an old coat, under his feet
