Wow, that's incredible! So glad it wasnt 38 horses that had been reported on our local news. Still heartbreaking.

I heard about it from the AHA. It's so sad to hear about those things. There's a place where donations are being taken to help these people. There's a link for it on the Arabian Horse Association website.

This took place about ten minutes from me. I had actually seen the smoke(my house is nearly at the highest point of the county), but at the time I didn't know what it was. So sad. And just days after a local rider was stepped on and killed in another incidence. There are/were three horses running loose. As far as I know they haven't been located yet.
