Hi there !
I have recently found out that some horses on the yard, where I am currently keeping my pony, have strangles. The yard has around 20 horses and ponies on it and there are currently 2 horses with it so far. However some have started with the same symptoms. I believe this outbreak was due to a lack of stable management as people have been using the same persons tack on other horses. As well as this, new horses have been brought on to the yard in recent weeks and then sold on. One of the carrier horses is two stables away from my pony, she is 18 years old. Is she at a high risk of contracting the illness? And what can I do to prevent her from getting it?. Any info or advice is much appreciated thank you!
