It is with a heavy heart & that I write this. We had a barn fire Tuesday morning and I lost one of my best horses....One Impressive Beau. He was one of the best horses I have ever owned & words can't express the pain I feel. The barn was only 6 years old there is a arson investigation being conducted. We lost everything...my saddles, the kids saddles, bridles, halters, my golf cart, muck buckets & carts, apple pickers, shovels, all my feed (and I had just bought 40 bags) & feed buckets, etc.
The kids had all kinds of tractor toys & diggers, bikes, etc. that they played with & it's all gone. Our 5 year old is taking it hard. We are beyond devastated. The Lord needed a good horse to ride.....he got a great one for sure. Thanks for the outpouring of kindness & help during this difficult time. I keep getting asked what we all had that needs to be replaced & I will be listing those things on here. Beau has lots of posts on Facebook under Karen Gauger and Karen's Quarter Horse & Buckskin Ranch.
Please look for updates soon.
