Thanks for sharing that.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

So does this replace branding inspections, or do you have to get those on top of branding inspections?

Actually it is not due to the recent Florida outbreaks. This has been in the works for several years.

Those that own a horse or two will be inconvenienced. Those of us that own herds of cattle and horses that are transported to breeding, feeding and housing facilities will be spending a lot of money to stay in compliance.

I think this is more detailed than a health cert, and as far as branding inspections-I have no clue, since i am in the east and we don't have those. THis sounded to me to be more like a Coggins paper with detailed description of the horse. Glad I RARELY go interstate. Now one more reason not to.

So you don't think that the outbreak has rushed this whole process and influenced the effective date?

Look at the date of release 1/28/13. The first horse from HITS was not even diagnosed until 2/20/13.

This isn't really due to the FL outbreaks. My show associations notified us back in January. (Note the APHIS data standards for the ICVI were published for commentsin the Federal Register prior to finalization) If anything, it is partially to the neurological EHV that made the news when horses got sick at some big NCHA shows.

Heavy haulers can get to many shows/locations in just a few weeks, especially in the summer. It's obviously not going to stop disease, but what it does is reduce the amount of time USDA people have to spend getting travel history from owners. I don't know if that is good or bad. Sometimes it is important to get the whole picture from an owner, but speed is also important.

I've been calling this a "federal health" just to keep it straight from our normal health certificate and an international health that is necessary to get into Canada. I haven't even been able to figure out if it replaces the normal health certificate. I also can't find any information on whether you still need import numbers to travel to a certain state. What I do know is that brand inspections are completely separate and necessary for certain states.

I'm glad they are going to be lenient on this new ICVI until the kinks are worked out though!
