    This is really hard for me to post so please bare with me. I do not wish to get any sympathy or anything out of this it is just so those who have viewed the pictures now the truth as well as I know it.

    I had a partner in the horse farming business that I was involved with. My partner no longer wanted to be involved with the horses and I had bought out her share of the horses all but two. We had agreed that in exchange for the property, barn and land, I would board those two horse for free for two full years. I agreed to this thought it was a great deal for me. This past week my partner proceeded to demand that I board an addition 12 horses for free for two years for her. This would completely break me in a week and since no paperwork had been signed I politely said no. My partner had been suffering from financial stresses for quite sometime and had a hugh insurance policy on the barn, land and horses. Now some how this afternoon the barn caught on fire and all of the horses were in the barn. They are never ever in the barn at that time in the afternoon. NEVER. None of them and the babies and mares are out 24/7 don't even come in once a day never. She was the only person known to have been on the property at the time of the fire. One horse [Molly] survived the actual fire but was put down immediately upon the vets arrical because she was suffering severely. So all horses were killed and the fire marshall is ruling that the fire is suspicious. A full investigation is taking place and I have shared every speck of information I have with the fire marshall. I have been terrified all day to post this for fear that someone here would somehow think I was involved; I assure everyone I was not involved in anyway. I am very heartbroken and empty as a result of this senseless, needless tragedy. I have a great alibi as we had a bbq this afternoon at our place with all of our close friends, including three police officers. I have lost all of my babies here and am absoluelty ruined as a result. Bob[RVF Totally Awesome], Joker, Molly, all of them; they must have been so terrified and I feel so guilty now for not being at the barn.
    Finances really are no issue right now it is the emotional loss that is really hard. I had no insurances but that changes nothing for how I feel right now. It has been the worst day of my entire life and I just don't know how to react or feel anymore. Thank you for reading this and listening, allowing me to get it off my shoulders. I am truely sorry to post something so horrific.

    Heather, I really feel for you. This is horrible. It's beyond words. I'm sure that anyone who reads this will just be heartbroken. It's such a senseless tragedy and I really hope that some sort of justice will be found even though it won't bring your babies back.

    I'm really, really sorry and I wish I could help. You have my support however you might need it and all the (((hugs))) I can send.

    Thinking of you...

    (((hugs)))

    OMG i'm so sorry to hear this!!!! So sorry that words can't even describe exactly how I truly feel...One horse is hard enough to lose but an entire herd is pure devastation! If there's anyway I can help please don't hesitate to let me know and if at anytime you'd like to just get in touch with some horses, there's 27 of them back home that would love to have someone scritch their ears or get on their back. I know I always love to have a good friend to ride with too. HUGS!!!!!!

    a thousand tears for each and every one that suffered because of her inability to face her "problems". I had a boss that did that to a warehouse full of tropical birds and lizards, rodents and snakes. All for the money..lets hope that they end up suffering each and every misery and won't have a tear shed for them to ease their pain.

    Oh God, how horrible! How could anyone do that? I am so so sorry. I hope the person that committed this vicious act of greed is brought to justice. I can't imagine the loss you must feel right now. If you need to talk more about it, we're all here to listen. Again, I am so sorry for your loss.

    I am so very sorry, I can't even imagine the pain you are going through right now. They can't give that person a severe enough punishment. Please know that I am thinking of you (((HUGS)))

    This woman is a fool. If a sparrow cannot fall without God's awareness, this broad better be prepared for the retribution she will get. And it will be far worse than what the law could ever do to her!!!!!!! Remember....vengance belongs to God. Just be sure to let us know when she gets what she has coming!!!

    And of course sorrow for what you are going thru. Just rest assured, SHE WILL GET HERS!!!!! And make sure YOU keep your hands off of her. Going to jail would not help you!

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Any pet that is lost is hard to handle but to have many of them that you love dearly. I truly hope that they are able to bring to justice whom ever it was that was involved in this.

    *sniff* Oh, I am so incredibly sorry!!! I can't begin to imagine the devestation that you feel!! I know for me it was bad enough when I had to have my poor old pony put to sleep, and I was just a shell of a person for months. Please let me know if there is anything at all that I can do!! I know that this will be of no real comfort, but, the horses would have passed away from smoke inhillation (sp) long before the fire would have burned them. So try to think of them going to sleep peacefully. I hope this helps you in this awful period in time. {{{Hugs}}}

    A-h-h...I finally found this thread after p.ming back and forth with you. You know how my heart goes out to you at this time. It is truly a horrific thing that someone could do that to all those lovely animals...such a tragic waste.

    I do hope they get whoever caused this. But Manchesters is right. Leave it up to the law. Your life is hard now, but you're going to get through it and will feel better again. Anything you might feel inclined to do for retribution will ruin your life completely. I say this because I would feel tempted toward revenge, but think I'd come to my senses first.

    My sincere condolenses. It may not feel like it now, but you will feel better in time.
