Horses Burned Alive - RIP Fancy and Blue :(
 
Two very special horses die not too long ago and I have just now gotten myself together to post a thread in their honor. Both of them were owned by one of our dearest friends, but myself and my family had strong affiliations with them and loved them as well.

The first is Fancy, full sister to our stud Jesters Cowboy. We would always joke about her height. She was 17hh and was used in driving. Her full brother, Jester, measures 14hh if he stretches...
She is on the right in the first pic. Left in the second.

The second is Blue. We used to own this beautiful boy. In his younger days, he was our third stud horse. Since we moved, we sold him to our friend and she since gelded him and he became a barrel horse for her niece. He was one of a kind, a grey paint, with such a kind heart. I rode this horse when I was little.

We do not know what caused the fire. Their owner and our good friend lost these two beauties as well as her grandkids pony. Her mother also died because she was disabled and could not get out.

This is truly tragic. My heart aches for them as well as my own grief knowing all these wonderful beings are no longer with us to brighten the day any longer.

Please send prayers to all of us tonight. I'm still in complete shock.

So sorry to hear of your loss, they were beautiful horses.

Thoughts are with you.

I've known of too many barn fires where hay was stored inside. Some were caused by internal combustion from the hay picking up moisture from the animals, hay dust that gets into a socket and ignites. I will never ever store hay in the same building as animals. Mine are never confined unless I'm there. In all likely hood the horses had succumbed to the smoke long before the flames.
