......I just wish the state of Tennesse would make some decisions and let people KNOW..
And as the next post says, since there were so many horses at Bucksnort from so many places, being physically far from "ground zero" doesn't give anybody much security.
When the outbreak happened from the cutting show last year, our barn was hundreds of miles from the nearest known case and we still felt at risk because of the fact that horses come and go to and from various events over a pretty large area these days. But, this time our barn is a lot nearer to the action than last year. I don't like this a bit.
I've only lost one horse to a "sudden death" (broken leg, almost 50 years ago) and I just can't imagine how hard it must be on the folks who have already lost horses to this outbreak and the folks who have horses who were exposed directly. I'm praying for all of 'em....
When/if I hear any more reliable info about the case that we're near to, I'll post it here.
May the Lord protect our horses....
