Horse Council coordinating relief for storm damage

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Horse owners who had damage during the tornadoes last week can seek help from the Kentucky Horse Council.

The council is coordinating the U.S. Equine Disaster Relief Fund.

The nonprofit group says it has often helped victims of flooding or other disasters in other states but now the people who need help are in its own backyard.

Council President Anna Zinkhon says the relief fund will help with temporary feed and fencing while Kentucky horse owners continue cleanup and recovery. Zinkhon says the council has also been in touch with the Indiana Horse Council to determine need in the neighboring state.
