    The thing that is really anoying me atm is the fact that there only sayin that tbs have it but its in the WHOLE equine industry not just tbs but there not sayin anything lik that on the news.

    Just think how bad this has affected everyone though so bad....the races are off, show season is off, breeding season might not even be aloud to happen so then we wont hav our 2 yr old sales, police horses hav been stopped its affecting every one so bad...its shocking.

    There hav been at least 70 properties that hav been affected most are in NSW, with only two in Queensland at this stage.
    There had been about 60 confirmed cases of equine influenza but test results from Centennial Park in Sydney would probably add about another 100 to that figure.

    Best thing for all of us to do is tell all horseie peps to keep there horses on there own properties and do what is bein asked and if anyone else comes onto the propertie make sure that they are clean first lol so then our own horses don't come down with it lol

    Were still at a stand still but they are letting horses go back on the track to work only id they are in that area of the place to work otherwise we are still on the stand still everywhere its so anoying

    Yet they are saying An outbreak in Australia of the equine influenza virus has spread to police horses in the state of New South Wales.

    Eight horses showed symptoms of the virus and all 36 animals have now been placed in quarantine.
    More than 400 horses across New South Wales and Queensland are now showing symptoms of the highly contagious virus, which does not affect humans.

    Yeah, and I heard on the news that a couple of people have been fined $150,000 for transporting their horses, I mean that's heaps of money! And if you can't afford that you have 2yrs in jail But I have to admit the people deserve it!!
