    Too true, too true. But typing out Equine Infectious Anemia on an iPad is exhausting, and it's really hard to spell!

    There was a Coggins positive horse at the therapeutic riding centre I work/volunteer at who lived with the rest of the horses (about 10 or so) until he passed away. That was quite a few years ago. The horses were all Coggins tested last spring and all had negative results. That's the only instance on a Coggins positive horse that I've encountered here, as most people are pretty stringent about having the testing done on a regular basis. We don't have any laws surrounding the testing, however it is mandatory for shows.

    I don't know much about EIA, except for the part that horses should be tested, and that a horse coming up positive is bad news. Research time!
