Two people, 65 horses dead in barn fire

One thought on “Two people, 65 horses dead in barn fire”

  1. This was on the front page of the Cincinnati Enquirer (the local “fish wrap” which I only get on Sundays). I couldn’t bear to read much beyond the headlines, I was so upset. I agree totally with the idea of sprinkler systems in barns (in general, not just horse barns). It seems to me that if one values the animals (at least for profit potential – disgusting, but sometimes true), one should protect them from unnecessary suffering, including the danger of fire.
    Seems like a no-brainer to me. Highly flammable buildings filled with highly flammable hay housing highly valuable animals. Why WOULDN’T you have sprinklers??

... and that's my two cents
