    Watched this and when you view the video you can see how the horses were probably all killed but even turned out they would have had blowing debris and fences to overcome. And they would have been in flight mode and ran blindly. Poor horses! http://kfor.com/2013/05/20/moore-man...n-horse-stall/ http://blogs.equisearch.com/horsehea...eeding-center/

    Picture of two surviving horses:

    This is a photo taken from raw video streaming by KFOR television in Oklahoma City. The report by the barn man who weathered the barn in the stall was that "maybe we have one left," regarding the number of horses uninjured or dead. A vet was on the scene, even then. There were six shedrows completely distroyed.

    To all : OKC Fairgrounds (aka State Fair Park) has opened up their barns to displaced horses. For those who may not know how to get there State Fair Park is located just northeast of the I-40 & I-44 intersection, at the 10th St. East exit off of I-44.

    Thank you for posting the links!

    Very poignant pictures, horses in shock!

    (Note – Reports from Off Family Farms are that 75 to 100 horses were killed by the storm. – Jerry)
    MOORE, Okla. (KFOR) — When the massive tornado hit Moore, Okla., Monday, some weren’t able to make it to their basements.
    One man was on a family farm at the time, noticed the wind pick up and walked outside to see debris flying, according to KFOR.
    Lando Hite was shirtless and muddy all over as he described what happened at horse and entertainment farm before he took refuge in a horse stall.
    “It was just like the movie ‘Twister,’ ” he told CNN affiliate KFOR. “There were horses and stuff flying around everywhere.”
    The tornado slammed into the Orr Family Farm, which had about 80 horses. It damaged several barns; Hite was worried most of the animals were killed.
    “I tried to let some of the horses out of their stalls so that they would have a chance,” said the worker, who said the building he was in was moved about 100 feet.
    He said he then hid in the stall, and the walls collapsed on top of him.

    More horse pictures from the Lost and Found also there is a Donkey listed as found:

    speechless with grief, in tears for this community.
    don't know a soul there, but am heartbroken.
    Write it in your heart.Stand by the code, and it will stand by you. Ask no more and give no less than honesty, courage, loyalty, generosity, and fairness.
    ...And quit acting so silly
