Thank you so much for posting this information. We moved here from the literal epicenter of these terrible fires. Current estimates are 200,000 acres burned, countless livestock burned to death, those that survived were fortunate to be turned out on the highways, and, of course, nothing for the survivors to eat. A mass burial for burned livestock is being planned for the fires are 100% contained.

In this area, it takes about 80 acres to feed one cow+ calf pair, because of the arid climate and rough terrain. Here, you can feed a pair on less than one acre. It's birthing season now, and our ranchers are in an even worse position than usual, because it hasn't rained a drop in seven months!

Please, reach out to those who need it most. In addition to livestock needs, almost 50 families have lost their homes. There is a need for resources such as food, water, fencing supplies, cash, and, of course, PRAYERS. This event is is a catastrophe of historic proportions, and each of the communities in Alpine, Fort Davis, Marfa and all points in between have come together in such an intimate manner, it brings tears to our family's eyes.

For information, go to or Friend Fort Davis Fires or Big Bend Fires on Facebook. Our thoughts and prayers go out to friends and family back home.
