The Walking Horse Community came together on Tuesday, May 23, 2023, when a fire broke out in one of the smaller barns at Forrest Shadows Farm which is also home to Joe Lester Stables. All the horses in that barn and on the property are safe and settled into temporary facilities for the next few days. Along with the horses, all the employees there are safe and no one was injured. 

The Forrest Shadows Farms and Joe Lester Stables teams are very thankful to the fire departments from several counties and to those that helped during and after the situation. 

The Report sends their thoughts to all involved.
