  4. Is it true that the old barn had no aisle exit doors, but that the horses were actually housed in a row of interconnected stalls with only one stall door at the end of the aisle?

  5. No, that is not true. Each stall had a normal stall door opening to the barn aisle, which was open at both ends of the barn. There were however no exterior stall doors (doors leading directly outside from each stall). This type of construction is not uncommon.

  7. Thank god no people were killed. As sorry as I am about these horses, the loss of human life would have been exponentially more tragic.

  8. So tragic, those six poor horses who could not be gotten to and rescued, but had to be left to die horribly as other horses around them were lead out and saved. My heart breaks for how they died. Very nice tribute to the memory of them.

    Thought I would share this with you.

    "I'll lend you for a little while a horse of mine" God said.

    "For you to love while he's alive and mourn for when he's dead". It maybe one or thirty years or maybe more than these, but will you, till I call him back, take care of him for me? He'll bring his charm to gladden you, and should his stay be brief, you shall have his memories, as solace ... Read More for your grief. I cannot promise he will stay, since all from earth return, but there are lessons taught down here, I want this horse to learn. I've looked this wide world over, in my search for teachers true, and from the throngs that crowd life's lanes, I have selected you. Now will you give him all your love, nor think the labor vain, nor hate me when I come to call, and take him back again? Will you shelter him with tenderness and love him while you may and for the happiness you have known forever grateful stay. But should the angels call for him much sooner than you planned brave the bitter grief that comes and please try to understand."

  11. I'm heartbroken for you all. Time will lessen the pain for you, I pray.
    Our lives are enriched by having our animal companions in them but it sure hurts, so much, when they leave us seemingly too soon, especially so tragically as this.
    A lovely tribute to the horses that were lost and Emily, thanks for sharing your touching post.

  12. My heart and prayers go out to you and your team. Such a tragic loss and event to go though, I can only hope this keeps all of you so close and somehow help each other through this. People around the world care and are heart broken. I'm just so very sorry. Wishing comfort to all of you and those injured. Thank you for keeping us posted. Lots of love to all of you.

  13. So tragic for the six horses who could not be saved. In an earlier blog it was said that Boyd buried the horses on the farm. I, and I know many others would be happy to give money for a memorial plague or statue for these brave, poor horses who were trapped.

    I am sure those six horses each had many people connected with them besides their grief striken owners: other trainers etc. the people who bred these magnificent talented horses. There must be hundreds of people who would like to come and pay their respects and have some closure.

  14. I think a memorial plague or something for those six poor horses who were trapped and died is a great idea.

    My prayers go out to those six horses.
