Unhappy Horses in Windham ME Lost in Tragic Fire

MoxiesBling@Maine.rr.com[/HTML]Hi All,

Not sure if you heard but our trainers barn, Spruce Hill Farm in Windham, ME" burnt down last week with all our horses, tack and dreams in the middle of the night - freak accident that they think a chipmunk chewed through a wire in the rafters that set off the fire. The only solace we have been able to give all our kids is that the vet said all the horses in the barn died of smoke inhalation in their sleep and were not burned to death and it all happened before anyone knew the barn was on fire at 4:30 am. This has obviously devastated us all since they were all a big part of our family not just mere animals to us. Below are some clips of the fire and news stories.

Everyone has always been so generous with the Maine Youths in the past and this barn held 75% of Maine's 2008 American Quarter Horse Congress Team in it. The kids are in need of everything from work boots, work/show saddles, work bridles, bits - just everything they owned and loved. If you can offer the kids anything on the tack side used or new, whether it's 1 work book, 1 bell boot, a used ripped old horse blanket, they would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you again and the kids appreciate you and your family so ever much.

We are also selling raffle tickets and setting up a concert fundraiser for them. Raffle tickets are available to all.

Regards,

Jill Noyes

Try posting on www.freecycle.org for ridding boot's and other stuff, I know a lot of people use that in southern maine area.....have yu hit any of the tack stores in souter maine for donations?....i.e the one in freeport or the one near biddeford? ......freecycle might be your best bet though.....
My biggest score off that site was my daughters quater horse

Not be sound harsh but when it's such beautiful horses with so much training that lose their life in such a tragic way, it's devasting. Great video, I also cried.
