I live in NSW and we live in a 'buffer zone' which is around a town that has EI and all the horses in the buffer zone HAVE to be vacinated, lucky the gov. Is paying for it anyway if you refuse to have ur horses vacinated you have to pay a $44,000 fine per horse! Our horses are done, even our mare which at the time of vacination had a 4 day old foal at foot. The vacination is apparently something similar to CANARY pox!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So the vet tells us! The vet and 'handler' came in, caught the foal and the handler grabbed the foals ear and twisted it if you know what I mean!!!! My mum certainly gave him a talking to!!!
I will put some pics of foalie on soon!!!!
