Alexis Blakey, age 19, from Oso Wash. walks with a stallion on Summer Raffo’s farm in Oso, Wash. on April 1, 2014.  Blakey was a friend Raffo and headed to her farm immediately after hearing Raffo was missing after the mudslide on March 22, 2014.  She has been caring for the 16 horses daily since.   “This was her life,” said Blakey.  “She loved horses and loved caring for them.  I’m really going to miss her.”
