Horses Perish in Trailer Fire

Three horses from Northern Tradition Farm perished in a trailer fire today on their way to the Tanbark Horse Show in Minnesota. Driver Neil Thorpe was unharmed.

Thorpe heard a popping sound coming from the trailer, and by the time he was able to pull the rig to the side of the road, it was completely engulfed in smoke.

The horses that passed away were reported to be The Man Of The Hour, Asylum, and Another Heir.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Patricia Barnard, the Hartners, the LeBris/Erffmeyer family, and the entire Northern Tradition group.
