Folks - when in doubt talk to your own vet. Many things vary by region, state and the indivdual circumstances. ANY information from the internet should be taken with a grain of salt.

Yeah, they need to be quarantined for about two months.

Yes, ******* strangles is a complication of the strangles disease. Bacteria get transferred to other areas of the body and cause abcesses at those other areas rather than just in the lymph nodes of the head.

A lot of years ago when no one had the price of a vet when a horse got strangles we would draw the poison out with a hot bread poultice and one time some of the rot got into a scratch on my left hand it swelled to3 times its normal size and at the hospital they thought I had anthrax,thank god for education and progress

"A recent study, presented the 2008 Forum of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine (ACVIM), evaluated S. Equi survival in a more "real world" situation: outdoors, on objects like fence rails, feed bins and water buckets. These items were experimentally contaminated with S. Equi, and the length of time that the bacteria survived was studied. Surprisingly, S. Equi only lived for a short period of time under these conditions, typically a day or less.
Does this mean that we should allow horses into potentially contaminated areas after only a couple days? Probably not. The results of this study only apply to the conditions that were studied, that is outside with exposure to sunlight, and during the summer. It is safe to assume that survival is short term on farms under these conditions, but it could be longer during cloudy periods and in shady areas. We don’t know the optimal time for which to quarantine stalls and paddocks, but it is reasonable to assume that long-term quarantine, as has been recommended in the past, is not needed in most situations. If it is sunny and there is exposure to sunlight, 1 to 2 weeks is probably well beyond the survival period of S. Equi."
