Sometimes the unexpected happens...

There was a barn fire about 10 minutes up the highway from where Denny's boarded.
I'm not sure how it started, though I suspect lightening. The entire barn and arena is burned to the ground.





I am unsure of what happened to the horses; if anyone knows any information I would really like to hear it.

Sorry about the terrible quality... they're cellphone pics and my hands were shaking really badly at the sight of such damage.

Oh, that's terrible. I hope all the horses got out okay. :O

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Horrible. I've known of two barn fires, both of which led to 15 or so horse deaths. I hope no horses, other animals, or humans were harmed in this fire.

(The fires I mentioned were supposedly started by cigarettes. Don't smoke at the stable, no matter how careful you think you are being. It isn't worth it.)

Just an update - no horses were hurt, and the cause of the fire is still unknown.
