Powerhouse Fire: Poor Horses on the Run


I’m not sure who took the photo, but it is a fireman trying to chase down the horses of some friends of ours.  The horses are freaked out and run toward the fire instead of away from.  If it wasn’t such a scary thing, it would be a cool photo!  They finally got them and then evacuated.

Another pic just posted, taken by Kim Cook.

    It’s sad and beautiful at the same time.

  2. Wildfires are simply awful, for the humans who suffer the loss of their homes, and even for the animals who are so traumatized and lose their habitat.

    What we do without our first responders! Be safe!
    I just toured Moore for the first time today. It was so sad. Down one road that I have always traveled was one of my favorite horse ranches. Some great racehorses have come from this stables.
    It is totally gone; in fact, if you didn’t know it, it looks as if nothing ever stood there. I know that the beautiful animals (who were all stabled at the time) perished. Not sure of the number; it is so sad.
    I am a horse lover. My horse saved my life in more than one way; it breaks my heart to think of these majestic creatures being killed in this manner or in your fires!

    That seems odd they would run toward the fire. I’m glad they were rescued and now safe. I can’t imagine fire so intense.

    Poor, frightened creatures. So glad they were rescued.

    • Yes. One was injured, apparently, but a vet was giving free treatment to it at the fairgrounds where many animals were being sheltered. I haven’t heard about some of the herds out there. There are herds of ostriches, buffalo, and llamas.

    So frightening for all the creatures who don’t know where to turn. I’m glad these made it to safety and I pray for the others still at risk.

    • Looks like things are looking up with some cooler temps, though the wind was up again in the night. Getting over another weird migraine so have not checked news……I am so ready to be done with these!!!
