I just saw that. I feel so bad for everyone there. I'm glad so they were able to save some of the horses though.

Such a major loss for Boyd & his heroic team who saved some of the horses.

Many great horses lost, but they were quite lucky to save the ones they did.

Lillian wasn't even technically supposed to be at the farm, but she's the one that smelled the smoke and got Ryan and Caitlin up to help her get some of the horses out. Let's not forget the people that were lucky enough to survive and get the horses out that they could. All three of them were treated at the hospital and then released later today.

The four horses that survived are all getting serious care and will hopefully make full recoveries, however I know that one of the horses has some serious burns.
