Skating on thin ice

Skating on thin ice

He has fallen through the ice. It held his six stone at the edge of the lochan, but despite warnings and telling him had to find his own way out if he fell through, off he skated. The ice broke ten metres out.. He could neither get any purchase by planting his back legs on the bed of the lochan, nor swim back or across. Treading water, he reared up and crashed down with his front legs on the ice. After five minutes he had created a channel back to the bank and he was no longer out of his depth. He sprang up, shook himself and promptly charged back in again!
