EVH-1 Breakout in IL

Lots of barns in that area are locking down with no travel in our out. FYI - heads up to any Midwesterners.

No link. I'm from that area. Friends of mine are locking down their farms because of the cases that have been found in Gurnee.

Did some googling. Can't find where there's any news about it lately. But doesn't the vaccine protect your horse from this?

Evidently not. I don't know much about it honestly, just catching up with friends on FB and saw some BO's posting that their farms were locked down until further notice and there were cases in Gurnee.

Hmm the thing I read said that the vaccine protects your horse, if you maintain the vaccine of course. Maybe someone has some other information?

Hope so. I know that my old trainer would not lock her barn down if there wasn't reason for it. It's prime schooling season.

Well if you can prevent it then I see no reason not to. Seems like it mostly affects foals and young ones.

Every horse in her barn is fully vaccinated. Must be a different strain or something.

The vaccine is about as good as a chocolate fireguard!

Majority of horses carry the EHV virus, which is why when they are stressed - like weaning a foal, going on a long journey, they often get snotty.

When the EHV virus mutates to EVH1 the problems really arise, this type can cause paralysis and death.

I lost a brood mare away at the stud with EVH1 - she had all the jabs at the right time and they did nothing to protect her.

Barns are right in shutting their doors until it passes.
