yeah I really hope it doesnt get to our pony stud!!
if the flu makes it to aunty lanas stud then we are absolutely stuffed!!
it is a bit like chicken pox in children......it just spreads like wildfire!
but back onto the stud farm.......all breedings have been cancelled and we cant take them to any shows.
i really hope it doesnt get tango :(
because she is so young it will really affect her
and we are also pretty lucky because we got the farrier in before then ban was declared
i dont mind the racing ban because all the people involved (gamblers, owners, guests, visitors, jockeys etc.) should be more worried about the health of their horses but not being able to ride around the forest and stuff is pretty annoying.....also i have been training for the adelaide show for ages (we were gonna take some horses/ponies out there and ride them in some events) but now we cant even ride outside our front gate!
good luck to all the other horse/pony owners out there......hope no other horses or ponies come down with equine flu.
fingers crossed that it doesnt reach honey ridge (our stud farm)
zero horses with the flu is plenty
