I have not heard any bad things about the vaccine. I did read about a mare passing the virus to her foal in utero resulting in a still birth. The mare died a few days later. I do know a few folks who have given the vaccine while their horse is experiencing symptoms of the virus which resulted in a mess, the horse lived but it was touch and go. I guess with vaccines you are sometimes dammed if you do and %^&& if you don't. A lot of the diseases are not worth monkeying around with. With this mares can abort if they get the vaccine or they can abort and die without the vaccine.

Pictures aren't showing up.

but I gave pneumobort at 5,7 and 9 months. Also gave WN and the 5-in-1 30 days prior to foaling. (Maybe WN is in that, im not sure?)

this was my first foal, and i did what the vet recommended. Wrecker was born 100% normal and healthy.

When WNV first became a problem, I was not going to vaccinate. I took my mare in for a preg check, and 4 employees at the vet clinic asked me if I was going to vaccinate, and all, including the vet, said they had had NO reactions. Famous last words!! I vaccinated, and confirmed her in foal. The next day, she came in looking like she had Parkinsons...head shaking, walking like she was blind. Reacting to the vaccine. She lost that foal, and I could not get her settled at all that year.

I do not WNV vaccinate ANY pregnant mare now.

All the supposed "WNV vaccine reactions" I've seen have more been due to mares receiving inadequate nutrition while pregnant.
Micronutrients such as selenium and copper play big roles in the healthy formation of foals..

As far as large, reputable breeders with a good broodmare feeding regime - I haven't heard a single complaint or warning about WNV vaccination. Nor from my vet who in his heyday was the largest repro vet for the race track breeders in the area...

I think it's a little presumptuous to assume that every account of this you read about, and the members here, haven't been taking proper care of their broodmares.

Our filly was born perfectly fine and healthy. The mare was given WN. Our vet we use for if/when we breed (the very rare occasion), suggests we vaccinate. And has never told us anything about reactions from the vaccines. And she does a lot of big TB farms in Ocala.
Never have had any issues with any of our horses and WNV.
But we also use intervet.... not fort dodge.
