Rest in Peace

A piece from the Facebook group started by the owners of the horses who died in the fire on Dec. 10, 2008.

In memory of the 8 horses that were tragically lost to a barn fire on December 10, 2008 at Spruce Hill Farm in Windham, Maine.

The horses were not only show horses; they were family and will be greatly missed. They won't be remembered for their show records but for the smiles they brought to everyone's faces. No one ever thinks that anything like this will happen to them. It is an utter tragedy. As all of you know these horses were very well loved and taken care of. Sometimes there are no answers as to "why this happens to good people".

Rest In Peace our beloved horses & may you enjoy the greener pastures in which you are now running.
