    I was a boarder there until Oct 2008. I saw pictures on the WFMZ 69 website.

    I also talked to a friend that drove by this morning. She said the main barn was totally burned to the ground. The bank barn was damaged and she wasn't sure about the pony barn. It is a shame. It was a nice facility.
    Jingles for the horses injured.
    I had heard that the 2 farm workers I knew when I were there had been let go and moved out of the apartment that was over the main barn. I am glad for them as they would have lost everything. I don't know if anybody was living in the apartment. I hope not.
