The barn owners did a fantastic job of securing the farm and preparing for the storm. They have plenty of food and hay and filled many large containers with water. I feel badly that I was not there to help them out. Eleven horses will be in the barn. The paddocks are just not safe enough. Too much debris. Too many trees. Even though he will be inside, I still felt the need to attach identification to my beloved.

The barn owners are very experienced horse people. I am sure that everything will be fine, but I am still apprehensive. What if the roof blows off the barn? What if there is flooding? What if we are suddenly told to evacuate? The thought of my horse trapped in a barn is unbearable, but the thought of him loose in a hurricane is equally terrifying. If they had to be turned loose, would my horse take care of his friend? Would he know where to go until we could retrieve him? I believe that he is an intelligent, sensible horse. He is strong and fast.
Harley vs. the Hurricane.
