Wild fire Update

Jerry said there were about 100 fire trucks working on the fires which the Wise county Sherriff said were started by someone burning their trash (during a burn ban). People are such #?*idiots! The fire jumped the fence and burned 100 acres of our hay field, Jerry’s sporting clays equipment, and came right up to the bricks on our neighbors house, Kelly Huddleston, but the fire fighters were able to save his house although he lost his tractor and hay (not sure about his cows). Then it moved across more hay field toward our log house where Conce lives and they were able to put that out before it got to the house. About 10:30 last night the fire fighters had to start a “back burn” fire to get control of the fire that was in a ravine on our property and Conce and Sergio had to evacuate the remaining three horses on that side of the property. Jerry and a friend had to move remaining unburned precious round bales, as well as put out hot spots with our fire engine. For any of you that live out in the country like we do, the fire engine we bought when we moved out there has been put to good use.

It appears that this morning things are contained enough that Jerry was going to go dove hunting! He is just as passionate about that as I am about the horses! I will stay in New Mexico for now. We are so thankful! Thanks to everybody who helped!
