With great thanks to the many, Cadet is happy to be back in a new stall in roughly the same location as his stall in the barn that burned. As a result of everyone’s efforts, Cadet is eating again and settling into his new stall.
For those of you who missed the story, Bittersweet Cadet is our 34 year old Morgan stallion. Cadet stopped eating after we lost the 3rd barn to fire caused by lightning.
A barn, approximately one-fourth of the size of the barn that burned is being constructed with the help of many volunteers. The effort is being led by Ron Baldwin, of Baldwin Carpenters and Builders, who is helping to create stalls and storage area for hay before winter arrives. The rebuilding would never have been possible without the assistance of Jim Galusha and his team that led the cleanup effort. With the help of the large equipment, those of us with rakes, magnets and gloves were able to sort through the remains more quickly.
The outpouring of generosity has been a humbling experience. People have continued to call, volunteer, send food for the workers, etc. Thank you to all who have kept us in your thoughts and prayers as we continue to try to recover from our loss.
