It has been one year since
a tragic fire took the lives of 10 therapeutic horses at Vail Meadows Equestrian
Center in Oregon.
Flames consumed a barn
taking the lives of the 10 horses and other farm animals.
"It was pretty devastating
standing there watching the fire we knew the horses and the ducks and the pigs
were all in there," said Joy Lyn McGee, who volunteers at the center.
A year later, the area
where the barn once stood is an empty field.
McGee says replacing the
horses has been one of the biggest challenges, but donations have allowed the
center to do just that.
"Eventually we did get
enough horses where we could continue the program and the volunteers and the
riders are learning to love those horses just as they did the ones that were
here previously," said McGee. "It was just heartwarming. The people that
donated money or anything that we needed they were here to help us."
That help included seven
new horses and materials to add on to a bar that did not catch fire.
"The Program is running
exactly how it was a year ago before the fire. We have the same clients, the
horses are doing wonderful for us so really we're back up to running just as we
were before," said McGee.
McGee gives the credit to
the community- for pulling together during their time of need.
