Crap! Not again .

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Great! That sucks.
Thanks for the update.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

What I don't understand is that according to our local Vet hospital, who put out a blurb on this on FB, most horses have been exposed to this virus already, and carry it in them? The risk is if they are stressed and their immune system is depressed. This is typical of herpes virus. So, why is it so much of a concern? If iit's always in their systems anyway?
I confess my ignorance on this, so am asking this question to those who might know more.

This time it is NOT the neurological form, however horses can develop neuro symptoms from normal EHV-1 and it can mutate into the neuro EHV-1.

So right now they are trying to contain it to horses at HITS and hopefully it does not mutate!!

They say money doesn't buy happiness -- well happiness doesn't buy horses!
