    That is terrible, how sad.

    Years ago we had one horse that survived the Blue Ribbons, Sallisaw OK track barn fire when he was a two year old in training there.
    He had some scars left on his hips and neck, but made it ok after all.

    Sounds like some horses made it out?

    As a close friend of those who lost their horses today in the fire, I am devastated and heartbroken. I cannot imagine there is a more horrific thing you can go through as a horse owner. There is also no way to ever replace what was lost today and I pray that they somehow have the strength to get through it. It is a terrible tragedy.
