I wish there WAS an effective vaccine for this. As outlined in this linked story ( Center for Equine Health UC Davis ), there are vaccinations that are used to try to achieve some sort of immunity, but what I've read everywhere basically says that nothing currently availailable is known to be effective against EHM (the bad version).

A good vaccine is what we all need and it just ain't here yet. So, isolation and the best disinfecting procedures are all we have at this point. That's why it's SO important to limit the movement of horses in/near the affected areas. It's kinda like that advertizement for some vaccine that shows a horse in one side of a trailor with a rhino in the other side: you just can't spot the risk visually!

It looks like there are outbreaks north and west of me . I need a PhD to figure out some of the information I am finding. One thing....FARRIERS. I wonder if any are routinely practicing disinfection?? I have been studying hard on how best to care for Rascals feet. In searching info it was brought home how far some of these guys travel to shoe and trim.

Mind boggling implications there. And NO I am not stating an opinion that farriers will/do/can spread this. It's just a path my mind followed.

You would think it would state where in Iowa the horse originated from.

Ain't it the truth. Specific location information about EVERY phase of this would be good. In order to avoid a problem area effectively, you need to know where the problem area is.

And concerning the post just above yours, wow.....I hadn't thought about farriers at all. That's definitely a possible vector. Good grief....

Now we have to worry about farriers! You know they are not Cleaning their tools after a trim... I am sure none of them out there do.

And don't forget that there's a difference between "cleaning" and "disinfecting"....

Ain't nothing about this good or easy....

Hmph. That's not too far away from me. We're taking our horses up to LBL (Land Between the Lakes) in a few weeks so it looks like we'll have to be EXTRA careful.
