WE HAD A 42 STALL FACILITY BEFORE THE FIRE. THIS NEW FACILITY IS 17 STALLS.)) ((WE WERE COMING TO THE REALIZATION THAT WE NEEDED TO EXPAND THE THOROUGH-BRED AND WARMBLOOD BUSINESS AND THAT THE MORGANS, WHILE WE LOVE THEM THE MOST, WE NEEDED TO EXPLORE OTHER OPPORTUNITIES.))
Their house was also destroyed in the fire.
Now they're living in an apartment above the barn, but for 14 months this was their home and business office.
To say the least, the 33 foot travel trailer was crowded with two children, dogs and a cat. ((EVERYBODY BRUSHES THEIR TEETH AT THE SAME SINK AND THE SAME TIME, CROWDED IN A LITTLE SPACE. YOU JUST LEARN HOW TO GET ALONG AND SHARE. YOU LEARN HOW TO PUT YOUR SHOES AWAY INSTEAD OF LEAVING THEM IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FLOOR.))
Soon there will be plenty of room for shoes in the middle of the floor--their new house will be finished by August.
The McBrooms say since the fire they've learned to appreciate everything life has to offer.
