    Default CNN Video of OK Tornado Horses Being Treated

    http://www.cnn.com/video/data/2.0/vi...pital.cnn.html

    "Hundreds of horses killed and hundreds of horses injured."

    Video of some of the horses and the vets & staff treating them. So glad to finally have this covered by the news media. The puncture wounds look terrible.

    Video answers "how did the horses get to the hospital?" by saying that vets & volunteers went around gathering horses they found by themselves or looking injured and brought them in for treatment. There's even a mare and her foal who were brought in separately, obviously separated by the storm, but reunited at the hospital.

    Lindsay's personal horse Dewy was just the sweetest goofiest big boy. I got to meet him when he spent 30 days with a close friend. Their losses and pain are far reaching.
