Today as I was reading yet another heart-wrenching article about the fire at True Prospect Farms, I realized that I used to know one of the individuals that helped rescue five of the horses. Sadly, she lost her own mare in the blaze. I've lost touch with her over the years, but I found her contact information and sent her my sympathies.
The horse world, and the eventing world in particular, is such a small one. Tragedies like this hit so close to home, even if they happen a thousand miles away.
And now, I'm going to go tuck my boys in with a carrot and a hug.
