It was a very sad day among my friends today.
The lower barn at Foxwood Farm where I used to board my horse burned to the ground last night killing 13 horses. They were able to save the 9 horses in the other barn.

I will particularly miss Tess, a horse I got to ride in a few lessons. I also knew Cricket, Abby, Beau, Farrah, and Maggie. The others all arrived after I had left that farm, including the mare of my friend Cheryl. Max was safe in the other barn and Kyrie was safe in the pasture.
I am very thankful that my horse is on pasture board (no barn, only a 3 sided run-in) and very sad for his former pasture mates and my friends who have lost their beloved pets.
