I was just up at our local fairgrounds today and found out some devastating news. One of our 4H horse barns (barn 16) burnt to the ground at 5:00 this morning. 60 horses were lost along with 2 men. The horses were pacers who raced at the fairground's track.
Loosing this barn (which could hold up to 80 horses) is a huge lost for our equine 4h'ers. This past year we were doubling up mini's during the fair since we had more horses than stalls. This coming year, well, it could get ugly.
Please keep barn 16 in your prayers.
