    My heart goes out to everyone affected - this is just beyond tragic.

    Oh my.. god. Just looking at the FB and seeing the normal day-to-day posts and then.. the destruction. As M&B said.. beyond tragic. I donated what I could to the PayPal e-mail. Ugh.

    I just learned that my 26yr. old retired event horse, Stray Cat, who lives just outside of Moore is ok. Unfortunately 2 horses who were recently adopted from the Ok. Thoroughbred Retirement Program were lost from the same farm referenced above. OTRP is also helping with relief if anyone cares to donate https://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Ok...ocation=stream

    Yeah, the post with the funny photo of her horse wearing a silly hat, and then he's gone. That really got to me.

    The post that got me was the barn...or lack thereof. You can see how it was set up, but its just gone. And the hay hat...then gone. I've been bothered by her pictures and situation all day. It's unfathomable...and beyond heartbreaking. So, SO sad for her!

    I can't even imagine, and we're not thinking about what happens next. Having to clean that up, find the remains, try to get their life back together to some extent. Keep living.

    She just posted a bit ago that their dog may be in one of the shelters. That's good, hopeful news, at least!
