A fire broke out in New Bloomfield, Mo., Monday afternoon, burning two barns and an arena at Fairview Farms, a breeding and training farm that specializes in American Saddlebred horses and offers riding lessons. Fairview Farms is home to more than 50 horses, most of which were able to be saved. Unfortunately, seven of them, as well as three dogs, lost their lives in the fire.
The road has since been closed and it can take reportedly days to weeks to determine the cause of the fire.
A GoFundMe account has been set up to help Fairview Farms rebuild its business. At press time, $40,755 was raised in just 16 hours. To find out more, or to donate, visit Relief Fund for Fairview Farms on GoFuneMe.
