That is absolutely tragic. In california we have lots of fires. During the cedar fire my friend's ranch burned and she could only save two horses. She was on her way back to pick up six more when she was stopped by a cop telling her she couldn't go any further. She lost her house, her ranch and the rest of her horses. I'm scared to death of something like that happening to my ranch.
