Poor horses! Wish they could've escaped. People should build barns with safety release gates connected to fire alarms.

The fire was early Friday morning not afternoon! It was an older barn.

Horse meat is great if prepared correctly. Anyone know the temperature of that fire and how consistant it was?

My horse was in that barn and there was 9 horses lost one was a 3 week old foal and I lost 5 chickens also and the lady that owned the barn lost 30 chickens.

Well..if YOUR horse was in that barn, and died, YOU should sue her! All the boarders should SUE her! If she was running a boarding stable SHE is suppose to carry insurance in the event that something like this should ever happen! SHE is liable! Time might be limited as to how long you have to file a claim, so I'd be calling my lawyer! If it was a older barn don't you think you'd been more cautious, and meticulous in it's up keep? If the horses were such beloved animals, SHE should have taken better care of them! They died because she didn't take care of their environment! That's negligence on her part! NEGLIGENCE!!!!
