We have recently moved to Florida and I know that outbreaks are a way of life around here... We were scheduled to attend the Ocala Arabian Amateur Show in March but it was canceled because of an outbreak of EHV-1. Since there is no vaccine and no real treatment for it I started thinking about ways to prevent the spread.
If I was to take a sprayer, like the kind you would use to spray weeds in your yard, and spray down the show ground stalls with a mix of bleach and water before letting my horse in, would that provide any protection? I know that it is spread through both air and solid contact, so it would not really address all of the risks, but I feel like I need to do something!
My horse is not a cribber and obviously I would bring my own feed and water buckets, but still...
Any tips from Floridians out there??
