It is a variation of the very 'ordinary' Rhino Virus that usually only causes the 'snots' in young horses and abortion in non-vaccinated broodmares.

This form is neurological and is fatal unless horses are treated for inflammation and brain swelling ASAP. Most effective treatment seems to be IV DMSO.

No one knows who or why the Rhino Virus morphs into this rare really serious form. Entire ranches, show ground and even a University Vet School equine facility have been quarantined because of it.

There is no vaccine (including vaccine for the other more common forms) that protects a horse against it.

Here is a link to more information.

Where are your minds?!

I might be wrong but isn't this the one that makes their breathing a little poopie? And maybe blood in the lungs?

Here is newer link that was put out by USDA when the big outbreak in Utah happened last year. Maybe this link will work better. [I retried the other link and it worked for me, though.]

Thanks Cherie... its purely because I'm at work and they block a load of things ;)

When I found out I sort of did a mad ARGH run around WHAT DO WE DOOO WE'RE DOOMED sort of thing... but will inform my trainer/YO this evening.. not answering her phone, so she is aware. I don't think anyone brings their horses that far to ride, thankfully!
