In the early morning hours Carney Performance Horses, in Georgia suffered a devastating loss when fire broke out in their barn. The barn and all 19 of its horses were lost in a matter of minutes as was the Carney’s home and all of its contents as they lived in a barn apartment.

A Go Fund Me page has been set up to help the Carney’s in this terrible time. All funds will go directly to Blake and Kyle to help with their daily living expenses and help to get their lives back on track.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the Carney’s and all those who lost their beloved horses in this tragedy.

  1. I am so sorry to hear of your loss. If I could help with anything let me know.

  2. I’m so very sorry about your horrific loss!!! Will try to find your go fund me and help as much as I can!!!!

  3. I just found out what happened. How absolutely horrible for you and your charges. It was a blessing that you weren’t in there asleep. It can reach 4,000 degrees in a matter of minutes. How did it start? Prayers will be part of my daily routine.

    I managed to find and am purchasing my dream horse – a Cleveland Bay (Canadian warmblood). He’s scheduled to leave NY on Nov 7th.

    I have no money left but I can send best wishes.
