Family home and ranch lost in fire

$24,204 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 285 people in 1 month
I don’t even know where to start....My family has been part of the Malibu community their whole entire life. My mom Judy Mora, has been a farrier (horse shoer) in the area since she was 19. She has always been very active and well know with the horse community. 30 years ago her and my grandma built a ranch in the hills of Malibu. The ranch has been my home for my whole life and every happy memory I have has been made there. We have everything from horses to ponies to chickens to dogs to cats even a sheep and a cow! We own a company called Horses for Productions, this is my moms only income. The majority of our animals come from unwanted situations - from people that can no longer afford their pets, can no longer tend to them, no longer want them or animals that have behavior issues. We take these animals and with training, love and TLC make them in to movie stars!  Our animals are our life’s! Last year we re did our whole horse area making it so cozy for our pets, our ranch was our sanctuary. Unfortunately Thursday night as the Woolsey fire grew we stayed up and prepared things at the ranch for the worst, we hoped and prayed that it wouldn’t jump the freeway. We never even thought about packing up anything from our house as we were so worried about our animals safety. We tried to call for help but the service and power was down and the trailers that tried to help us were unable to make it though the road closures to us. Once the fire jumped the freeway we would have thought we had hours to prepare, but with in 15 minutes the flames were on our street - we can not believe how fast this fire was. We got out EVERY SINGLE one of our pets, with help from some amazing people who I will never be able to thank enough. Once we got our animals to safety we then tried to get back up to our ranch to try to save it and help a neighbor who had to let their 6 horses go. We tried for 7 hrs with no luck. Saturday morning early we were able to make it though, we were devastated to find everything at our ranch burnt to the ground. Our house, our tack rooms (with all of our tack), every single thing. BUT we have our animals and our lives, and that is what matters. My mom is the kind of person that will give you the shirt off her back. And her and my grandma have now lost everything except for the clothes they were wearing. We lost our house, our well,  all of our horse supplies, tools, tack, buildings, every childhood picture, all clothes, everything. But we will rebuild and get through this. We hate more then anything asking for money but unfortunately at this time that is all we can do to try to rebuild. 

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everyone’s help. 

*we went back and found our neighbors horses alive and ok!!

Thank you all soo much for your support! After 23 days we were able to take our animals home! Our roads are still on hard closures but we are finding ways in and out to take them food and supplies. An amazing family let my mom use their RV so she is glamping at the ranch with the animals! And we are getting trucks of water hauled in. Our quote to fix the well is close to $10,000, and our main pasture fence is close to that as well. I did break my foot on about day 7 being evacuated when a horse jumped on me, but it is healing well!! And not holding me back! At the moment we are good on horse tack and clothes! Please keep sharing our go fund me as the expense to fix up our ranch and home are continuing to add up fast. Thank you again all soo much! I wish i could give you all individual a huge hug!!! ❤️
