This snow needs to stop ): (WARNING: there's blood)

During the storm we got Thursday night, the indoor at my barn collapsed from the snow, the neighboring barn's also went down.
Luckily, there were no horses in theirs. We had two pens in our indoor that my friend was keeping her horses in. They are both alive, once you see the pictures you'll be amazed.
The one mare made it out with no scratches at all, the other wasn't so lucky. She would have been fine, but as the fire department was cutting her out of the mess, she flailed around and cut up her legs.
Three of the cuts were suspect of having cut through the joint, but the vet is 99% sure that they didn't.
So glad that they're alright

Sending good thoughts and prayers for that poor horse and the property owners!

Oh my.....we had 8 1/2 inches here and I had a board that supports the roof of Miss Lacy's stall pull loose but nothing came down.

Poor horses must have been scared to death....

Hope everything works out well for them both...

We got there after they had already been wrapped, so weren't really sure where she was bleeding from.
She had a deep cut on her stifle, the front of her hock and around her fetlock.
In that picture I think she had at least three polos and vet wrap with pillow wraps.
We unwrapped everything and redid it with vetwrap and that stopped it. It was such a mess that we didn't see the one on her fetlock, so that's where a lot of the blood came from.

Gunslinger, when we were in the barn with them and snow fell off the roof they got so scared. I can't imagine how the felt that night.
Thanks for the well wishes!

That's sad.

We got lucky out on the west coast, only about a foot of snow/ice so collapsing roofs wasn't a problem. Now mother nature is trying to flood us out with rain and 50 degree weather.
Foxtail Ranch and kiltsrhott like this.

We have about 3 feet, depending on where the snow has drifted to.

Hope you fair well with all the rain out there, we're supposed to get ice

It the snow comes off only one side there is a huge shift in pressure from the loaded side which causes a building to collapse. My hay shed roof collects snow worse than the others. It is a low slope up against the barn. I'll pull a 3' strip along a sloping edge, then go to the other and do the same. Then the middle then work both ways. It is only 16' wide but a cave in can happen on an even smaller roof. Any time you're in an arena and hear the snow slide, get out immediately.
