Fire in the barn

Early Saturday morning I was awakened by thunder and lightening.  Chance was nervous…he laid right beside me and panted.  I dozed..Far Guy woke me up and said he was leaving “Terry’s barn is on fire.”  My first thought was “THE HORSES.”

The beautiful Akhal-Teke..

Akhal-Teke by the name of M

Could it be true..

M the Akhal-Teke

She and her stable mates..gone?

Hard to believe..here one day and gone tomorrow.  We stopped by on Sunday afternoon to see if anyone was around…the pasture was empty..the farm yard is empty without the barn that has stood in that yard for as long as I can remember and then some.

It is rumored that there are only 400 Akhal-Tekes here in the United States..now there are only 399.

I feel sadness for the horses that died early Saturday morning and for all their owners:(

  6. It brings such sadness to my heart. I have loved horses since I saw my first one as a very little girl. So large, regal, each on with their own personality, definition and stance. My heart grieves so for the ones that were lost. Will pray for all those hurting over this fire and loss.

  20. How horrible. I know barns are susceptible in the summer because of the spontaneous combustion with hay, etc being stored - - - at least that's what Grandpa used to talk about - - - but it's so terribly, terribly sad. The loss of the beautiful animals and also the building needed by the owner are huge.

  21. It is a tough story to read as I wanted the horses to survive and that didn't happen. It is a tragic thing.

  22. That is just sickening to think about. All I can think of is the terror those horses would have been feeling before they were overcome by the smoke.
