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..

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:(
