Here I am, sitting and resting, reflecting on my weekend. The good, the bad, the stinky. Literally. More on that later. Meanwhile, I found this news article. My thoughts and prayers are with the owners, the healing horses, and the staff.
West Grove, PA - May 31, 2011 -At 12:30am this morning, a barn fire of unknown cause tragically destroyed Boyd Martin's barn at True Prospect Farm. Eleven horses were in the barn at the time. Lillian Heard, Caitlin Silliman, and Ryan Wood were able to evacuate five horses. Four horses are currently in treatment at The University of Pennsylvania-New Bolten Center; they are: Neville Bardos, Otis Barbotiere, Catch a Star, and Ambassador's Rose. Lillian, Caitlin, and Ryan were treated and released from Jennersville Hospital. Tragically six horses perished in the fire.
