Recently, a tragic barn fire at the farm of Alabama HBPA President Skip Drinkard and his wife, Pat, killed 10 of their horses and destroyed the barn and a great deal of tools, tack, and equipment. It was the kind of experience that nobody should have to endure, and the Drinkards are working to pick up the pieces and move forward as they continue to care for the remainder of their horses.
The National HBPA Foundation set up accounts in the Drinkards' name with Breeders' Supply and National HBPA Sponsor Big Dee's Tack & Vet Supplies where donations can be made to help the Drinkards as they try to rebuild from this tragedy.
