    although i never had the opportunity to meet you, i feel that in itself is a great loss to me. your loving father brousse has brought you into my life now. we would have made great friends, with our common love for animals. it saddens me that the world has been deprived of all the love you both offered, to all livings things in it. although you can no longer be with us in the flesh, your spirits and the love you have in your hearts, will remain with all those who knew and loved you, and all those that know your story and also with me.
    stay free and ride the spirits of your horses in the sky.

    I remember the days of horror, unfolding on the television, watching from up nth qlds way. The tears pouring down my face, and many others emotions too. I mourned the loss of so many people that i had never met before, it surely was a tragedy, unlike i have ever seen before.
    I just want the loved ones all left behind, and those now somewhere, more devine, to know that, although the days are passing by, the memory of that day will never blind.
    Please know that prays are with you all, for those that lost 'love' big or small.
    I pray that you find peace of mind, knowing that your loss is remembered for all of time. Peace n Love Hails xoxo

    I live in Pheasant Creek and on the day of the fire I was weathering out the heat like most people with the curtains shut and watching TV. We knew when we moved here two and a half years ago that we were moving to a fire-prone area and we took it seriously. We bought a generator, a decent pump and installed a sprinkler system around the house. My husband spent many hours clearing undergrowth and removing overhanging branches.

    We went to the CFA meetings and joined the local fire-guard group. This was a series of meetings in neighbours houses led by a CFA volunteer who educated us about what to expect from a bushfire and how to prepare our properties.

    Because of the weather warnings during the week and the previous exceptionally hot weather that led up to the day, we had filled water barrels and placed them around the house along with mops and buckets, rakes, etc. and had the correct clothing ready.

    When the fire hit we went into complete panic for a few minutes then got ourselves under control, turned on the sprinklers and my husband connected the trailer to the car carrying water tanks and began hosing trees that caught on fire close to the house. Meanwhile my son and I were putting out embers that threatened to take hold close to the house. The sprinklers attached to the eaves of the house kept us cool and wet. The fire was all around us, in the trees and catching in a flash of a second everywhere but the house was OK thanks to the sprinklers and my wonderful brave husband and son. These things saved us along with a whole lot of pure luck. Venturing out to seehow everyone else had fared was the scary part, with trees and power lines hanging and falling over the roads and still burning, most of our neighbours houses completely flattened and still exploding. Hugs all round and screams of relief when we found our friends OK. They had run to another neighbours house and fought the fire together there.

    We lost sheds and loads of stuff and our precious cat who liked to sleep in the hay in the shed but we are all OK and I guess here to stay.
