I think it is making a big leap saying it is either arson or it is your fault.

Barns are a fire waiting to happen. We are humans and can only predict so much. Bad things happen. It does not have to the fault of someone that something bad happened.

The Trusting Horse

I never meant to bring anyone down with my horse story but I am pleased that there are so many out there that love horses and appreciate the heartache of losing one (or three). What happened to my pretty boys was horrible but when I read what happened to DJ, I was appalled and heartsick. That poor, sweet, old horse! How perplexed he must have been by what was happening to him!

Undoubtedly DJ must have trustingly walked up to the person(s) that betrayed DJ and brutally beat DJ to death. Whatever it was that led to the fire in my barn, at least my horses didnít feel betrayed by someone they trustedÖ poor DJ. Iím so sad for his owners. To know the psychopath is running around free is disturbing to me and I canít even imagine how DJís owners must feel.

Someone mentioned that maybe another horse kicked DJ to death but apparently his owners and the authorities have already considered that and eliminated that as a cause. This is serious because whoever is responsible apparently thinks brutality against the innocent is loads of fun and what is more innocent than a little human child? I pray that they catch the culprit(s) responsible for DJís death soon, before there is another tragedy and if my barn fire was arson, I pray that an associate of the arsonist turns them in before they commit another act of arson. Someone out there must have the courage to speak the truth and stand up for the innocent.

Every time i read this it makes my heart ache. Just know you could do nothing but pray. I just can't keep thinking about them being burned alive. That hurts the most to me. I'm sorry again. (and yes i do read this often. I'm just so sorry.)

Trouble rides a fast horse.....(Shrug)..... I ride a faster one.

*stares* I think I read that original post at least four times. That is terrible. All I could think about was "What if that were my horse? My babies?" And you know... I can't even imagine. I don't know how you've stayed so strong. Respect to you for dealing with it. My thoughts go out to you and your animals.

I wish that all horse owners with barns would not stable their horses overnight, if possible. (not pointing a finger at OP).
