Foster Family in Need After Home Explosion

We are sadden to share Nicole Foster, a dedicated member of the American Saddlebred community and ASHBA committee member, family was hit by a devastating tragedy after a water heater exploded while moving into their new home. The explosion destroyed their new home, possessions, and tragically claimed the life of Foster’s brother in law, Timothy Payne. Our thoughts are with Nicole and her family at this difficult time of loss. The family has started a GoFundMe to assist Nicole’s sister during this extreme time of need.

From Nicole Foster: Timothy Allen Payne was a husband, son, brother, father, uncle and friend. He lost his battle this morning and we are completely devastated.

There are no words to convey the pain in our hearts and as our feelings of grief, loss and sorrow begin to sink in, the reality of this horrible situation is also settling in for all of us. We need your light, love, condolences and prayers for the days and weeks and months ahead will be filled with unspeakable sadness.

A GoFundMe account has been established in Tim’s honor to help with expenses. Thank you all for your support, we are eternally grateful.
