Prayers for the family and the animals. I will never forget being inside the barn when the indoor collapsed. It was one of the most scary experiences ever. It will stay with me forever.

Very sad. Not far from my old trainer's barn. The pics all my friends were posted of it yesterday was crazy! Way to close to home.

Someone posted on another forum that there are currently open investigations into abuse and neglect at the farm where this occurred due to the discovery of the squalid living conditions the ponies were in.

Not surprised. The pony they showed in the news clip, imho, was pretty thin.
