VERSAILLES, Ky. (AP) — A central Kentucky feed store is helping some four-legged tornado victims of in Oklahoma.

Woodford Feed Co. in Versailles has been collecting donations from customers to help horses that were injured when a devastating tornado struck last month in Moore, Okla.

The Lexington Herald-Leader (http://bit.ly/18BAmbH) reports store employees were loading feed and stall bedding onto a truck Wednesday to be delivered to Equine Medical Associates in in Edmond, Okla.

Hubbard Transportation, which takes horses and cattle all over the country, is delivering the products.

Judi Baumann, a Kentucky area manager for Hubbard, says the company is happy to help.

"We go to Oklahoma weekly," Baumann said.

Horses in Oklahoma suffered facial damage and lost teeth in the storms.

"The clinics there are desperate for (stall) wood shavings because the horses have had surgeries, and they need to be on clean shavings to keep from being infected," Baumann said.

She said the company is available to keep helping out.

"As the donations continue to come in, we can always take more," Baumann said.
