The neurological form of EVH1 presents itself as a fever, sometime a snotty nose and severe neurological symptoms similar to those seen in Encephalitis and EPM. It spreads like wildfire and only has a 2 -4 day incubation period.
They just cancelled the huge Breeder's Invitational Cutting that was to start in Tulsa, OK today. Several horses came down with it that were at the Big Western Cutting held the last two weeks in Ogden, Utah. Now, horses that returned to their homes from Utah are being quarantined in several states to make sure they did not bring home the virus. Several big Cutting Horse farms in California that we know very well are under quarentine.
We just cancelled sending a Mecom Blue filly we have to Sandy Collier in the Santa Ynea Valley. Her place is not under quarantine but so many places near her are that we did not want to chance sending a valuable filly from here to there while all of this is going on.
The AQHA website is putting up daily updates as is the NCHA website.
Our arena just put out a warning about this as well to all the members. They mentioned the horses in CA.
Do you know what the symptoms are?
