Reading awful stories of folks having to leave horses behind in the evacuation areas. Horses who won't load in trailers, horses who can't/won't be led out.
Such a horrible situation. And, such a vivid reminder to ensure that your have an evacuation plan. Make sure all horses will load in any trailer, will they lead off a truck, can you pony them, how many can you shove in your stock trailer? Do you have a defensible space?
One suggestion was to make sure the names of the owners and their phone numbers are duct taped to halters in case the horses get emergency evacuated to various locations.
So incredibly sad.
