My horse was struck by lightning today.

I can't believe it. The barn owner called a couple of hours ago to tell me that my horse was struck in the massive electrical storm we had tonight. She didn't make it.

I'm just so heartbroken, I don't know what to do.

It was just so bizarre, she wasn't wearing shoes, and there were hundreds of much taller things right next to her....... two giant metal buildings on either side of her paddock, huge trees, etc.

I'm just devastated.
