Nick Compaglia is an East Bay local rancher who’s leased barn burned to the ground last night – the fire claiming the life of a favored horse and severely burning another.
His many friends say he lost all his tack for his ranch horses, feed, equipment including a quad and trailer he used to feed his horses and cattle.
The surviving horse is currently in critical condition at UC Davis Veterinary Hospital with bills for IV fluids, pain meds and antibiotics to fight off infection likely to add up quickly.
Nick also lost a barn full of tools, and meds used to treat everyday livestock ailments. He does not have insurance to replace anything.
His friends say Nick “treats kids like they are his own” and that he would “give you the shirt off his back.”
If you could spare a few dollars or perhaps some feed or tack, it would be appreciated. If you can’t donate, please share this post.
