Wow I am so glad to hear that the winds changed and the fire was controlled. I always think about the animals and horses whenever I see wild fire news.
You should try working on getting your horse used to a trailer just in case of an emergency like this. My QH Cocoa would give me a hard hard hard time loading, sometimes it would take hours to get her onto a trailer. About 5 yrs ago a natural horsemanship trainer came over to load her onto a trailer and move her for me - he had her on his trailer in no time at all... and ever since he worked with her that day she gets on and off with no problems now. Its a blessing because at 32 yrs old now I never know if a vet emergency will force us to have to trailer her to a hospital or something. Best to not have to fight with a 32 yr old. Lol
