Items which are needed for horses include feed, grain, bedding (shavings and wood chips), Bute, Banamine, Gentocin, Dormosedan, first aid supplies such as Furacin, wraps, standing bandages, hydrogen peroxide, Vetwrap, cotton sheeting, antibiotic cream, etc. They also need lead ropes, halters, stall webbings, hay bags, buckets, hoses, double-sided snaps, duct tape, fly spray and bottles, pitchforks, muck buckets, grooming supplies, hoof picks, etc. (For the convenience of those who would like to donate sweet feed and grain, it can be purchased from Deverís at the Kentucky Horse Park and loaded directly on to the truck., or you can bring your own feed donation.)

Donated items for other pets will also be accepted, such as dog food, cat food and cat litter.

Items being requested for horsemen include helmets, boots, flak jackets, exercise saddles, bridles, saddle pads and girths, so they can get back to making a living. In addition, toiletries, baby items such as baby food, diapers, blankets, bottle liners and non-perishable food items, household supplies, bathroom supplies and cleaning supplies are needed. They have also requested linens, clothing, folding chairs and cooking supplies.

Donations may be dropped off at the Kentucky Horse Park, on Iron Works Parkway (exit to park is marked on I-75) in Lexington beginning Thursday, September 8, from 7am to 7pm every day until two semi trucks are filled. Lexington Cartage (owned by the Young family of Overbrook Farm in Lexington), C.H Robinson and J.P Services have generously donated the use of their trucks, drivers and fuel to get the items to Louisiana and Mississippi.

Hall of Fame Jockey Chris McCarron will be on hand at various times throughout the day to meet with the media and the public. The donation drive was spearheaded by the National Horsemanís Benevolent & Protective Association in cooperation with the USEF, the Kentucky Horse Park and the many horse organizations located at the Park.
