Just saw a photo of the fire on fb - looked awful.  So glad all are okay.  Blowen mentioned yesterday that staff were staying thru the night with the horses thinking they wouldn't be able to get in today.  Good plan.  A life saving one.

 When I first saw the headline that there was a fire at Old Friends, my heart was in my throat--- how wonderful that those loving caring volunteers were there to take care of what could have been a dire situation.  Thank goodness no humans or horses were injured

Barbara Livingston  just posted photos of the barn burned completely to the ground and this comment:

After the fire, this morning at Old Friends. The quarantine barn was a complete loss but thanks to quick-responding staff, both Alphabet Soup and Archie's Echo were removed safely.

No one from the farm was injured, although apparently one firefighter was injured when they fell on the ice, according to reports.

The back story on Archie's Echo - saved from the kill pen at 26 yrs. old.

   Thanks for posting this uplifting yet tragic story ---when i read stories like this, and see pics of the horse when he was a young race horse, i ask myself, how the hell did he wind up in a kill pen
