Shot Dates?

Hello! My horse always gets his shots in June, so I have never done anything different, but some people at the barn are getting there horses done in about a week or two and said we could share the trip fee. Can he get his shots this early? I'll probably call the vet anyway to make sure it wont be a problem, but I just wanted to ask here first! Thanks!

I've never really known a lot of people who get shots in the summer. I normally schedule them for fall and spring as do most people around here at least. I don't see why It would hurt to get them now versus later.

life has no remote control hitch them up and drive them your self

It depends what your vaccinating for. If the vector for the disease isn't a problem until May-June and it's a short lived vaccination like flu (which really shouldn't be needed until fall) or rhino than you're wasting your $$. The efficacy of the vaccination will basically be over and you won't have the protection when you need it.
