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.

Wow. That is so scary. I hope the horses made it out. :-(

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

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.)

Omigosh. Wouldn't it be horrible to drive up to that? Gosh, I can't even imagine it.

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