The farm’s owner saw the smoke and sent out alerts and a Facebook post calling for help to get the 100 or so animals to safety.

“And help came from all over,” said Sandi Walker.  “We had, I don’t know, a line maybe about a mile long of cars, trucks, trailers.  They came to load horses, donkeys, whatever they could.”
