This continues to scare the crap out of me. I stay home with my guy right now. But I have friends who "WERE" riding all over.
Until this last outbreak in TN I hadn't a clue it is an airborne virus either. I knew it could be spread through bodily fluids. I knew it was contagious, highly contagious. I just didn't realize until now, if this breaks out in a densely horse populated area, we could be in for a mess. For a LONG time.
I can't help but wonder if this virus can be carried by rats, bats, moles and such. If horses can get it through the air, can humans become a carrier? Can we "have" the virus and carry it and infect other horses? I'm reading, but the mind wanders down some scarey roads when dealing with something like this.
