A coggins is a mandatory requirement at every horse show; public trail; organized trailride; most, if not all boarding stables; auctions; crossing any state line; etc. that I'm aware of. Every breeder that I know requires it and it is only valid for 1 year. Every spring I have my vet out to give shots and pull blood.
The controversy around it's significance is, as QHDragon said, that it is really only good on the day it's pulled since a horse can become affected moments after their blood is drawn.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
