So Basicoly in the past year at our farm, and neighbouring farms, it has been horrible! To start with, back in september, we had one horse die. Another one almost die, or be put down. And another one die. After that we had a horse be put down, because of a unknown desiese.. Another one put down for a rare desiese (forget what it was called).
After that My barn breaks out with strangles. Hitting 9 horses.
One of which has Basterd Strangles.
(Basterd Strangles which describes the dissemination of infection to unusual sites other than the lymph nodes draining the throat. For example, abdominal or lung lymph nodes may develop abscesses and rupture, sometimes weeks or longer after the infection seems to have resolved. A brain abscess may rupture causing sudden death or a retropharyngeal lymph node abscess may burst in the throat and the pus will be inhaled into the lung.) This horse is Three years old, just trained last summer, and has it in her legs. Basterd Strangles is Highley deadly, for it can appear in one, or more then one area's of the body.
Then a case of deadly colic hit a horse at a neighbouring farm..
It was so bad its spleen and bladder switched spots.. Paralyzing it and cause it to have to be uthinized. (Aka Put down).
So what has been happening at your farm?
Anything crazy? Or is things going fine and dandy?
