I'm still in shock. I have lost count of the number of times I have started crying when I think of what happened early Tuesday morning. Yesterday Boyd posted on his blog, thanking everyone for their support. He said, "Your support has lifted our spirits in this very dark time." Of course reading his post brought on a new round of tears. When I saw that he and Phillip had gone into the barn after being ordered not to by the fire chief, to drag Neville out, I couldn't help but cry. Because anyone of us would have done the same thing for our animals. I would not hesitate to rush into a burning building for my horses, regardless of the danger to me.
But as Boyd said, Life goes on. It's hard, and it still hurts but we must move on. And so in that vein, I will be resuming with the posts I had planned for this week. Naughtie made her showing debut this past weekend, and we kicked off the open show season at Canfield. I'll be back later to tell you all about our trip to South Farm.
One last thing, I would just like to say how proud I am of the eventing community. And the equine community as a whole. The quick way everyone moved to support Boyd and everyone involved at True Prospect Farm was just inspiring and amazing. I'm proud to say I am part of that. As tragic as it is, I'm sure it must bring some comfort to them to know how much everyone is here for them. Stay strong.
