R&J Show arena burned in MN, 40+ horses dead

I have been in TX all week and just recieved news that the R&J arena in Verndale MN burnt last weekend. 40+ team penning horses were lost in the fire, it was said that many horses were World Class. Here are a few articles that I found... Very Sad. I was just at this facility in Nov. for a show and have shown there many years as well as attended auctions.

My heart and prayers go out to the horses owners and the Sundby's (barn owners) for the horrible loss.

It's not the will to win, but the will to prepare to win that makes the difference.

That is such terrible news. I'm really sorry for all the losses involved.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Oh that so sad and scarey. Those poor, poor horses. What an awful thing. My heart goes out to the animals and the owners that were powerless to help.
