I got to the ranch right as the winds started to change. Our entire mountain was on fire, but within about twenty minutes it was contained and we were told that we should be okay.

The ranch is safe and so are the horses. I think I had my fright for the year... We all needed drinks after that. ><

I don't know where you're at, Dedebird, but I'm in Lakeside, California. Sandeigo. Hopefully you didn't have to evacuate! We got REALLY lucky.

Wow I am so glad to hear that the winds changed and the fire was controlled. I always think about the animals and horses whenever I see wild fire news.

You should try working on getting your horse used to a trailer just in case of an emergency like this. My QH Cocoa would give me a hard hard hard time loading, sometimes it would take hours to get her onto a trailer. About 5 yrs ago a natural horsemanship trainer came over to load her onto a trailer and move her for me - he had her on his trailer in no time at all... and ever since he worked with her that day she gets on and off with no problems now. Its a blessing because at 32 yrs old now I never know if a vet emergency will force us to have to trailer her to a hospital or something. Best to not have to fight with a 32 yr old. lol
