A Thanksgiving Day stable fire killed more than a dozen horses in Georgia.
The raging blaze destroyed New Vintage Farm, located in Woodstock. The hunter/jumper boarding stable is owned by Julie Curtin, who was reportedly out of town when the fire started.
Curtin’s grooms risked their lives and saved 20 horses. Another 15 horses, two mini donkeys, and a dog perished in the fire.
Nicole Cholakian posted on the farm’s Facebook page, “Many beloved horses were lost in such a terrible tragedy. My time with Julie and the NVF gang will always hold a special place in my heart. An endless thank you to the grooms who risked their lives to save all those they could. And to those who were lost; May your grass always be green and your peppermints always be sweet.”
The cause of the fire is not known.
The surviving horses are at Willis Park in Alpharetta.
