Kentucky Department of Agriculture Creates Resource List for Disaster Relief
The Kentucky Department of Agriculture has launched a resource page on their website for farm families affected by the July flooding in Eastern Kentucky. Through this page, ag producers can find the help they need while they work to recover what was lost, including:
FLOOD UPDATE 8.4.2022
At this time, horse owners are not asking for anything other than smaller loads of small square-bale hay as they have minimal places to store it. Many horse owners are in areas that are still impassible, so hay is literally being driven as close as possible and walked or floated across the water to get to where it’s needed.
Do you have small square bale to donate? Do you know of a horse owner in need? Please email the KHC office at email@example.com We are compiling a list of resources and will work to arrange delivery to flood-affected counties as needed.
The Kentucky Horse Council is not headquartered in the counties affected by the flooding; as such, we feel strongly that horse lovers should donate to entities that are in the area and able to ensure the funds get into the hands of those most in need. Please consider donating to any of these wonderful organizations listed below, who have people literally working day and night to help as many as they can. The KHC is honored to help in any way we can. Have an idea of how else we can assist? Please reach out.
Horses: Appalachian Horse Project This Facebook page also disseminates information on hay delivery locations as well as stall and paddock availability for horses in need.
