it is DEFINITELY still around, throughout Canada including BC,AB,SK,MB, and the YT at least (I haven't looked into further east) so I just don't understand how it continues to be ignored. I think the Yukon has a good approach with requiring a test every year to be done on any horse that goes to a show, clinic, most boarding places, etc. Yes, a horse can get it after being tested, but at least it will be detected upon the next testing.
I know a bunch of horses tested positive in SK last year and I read on the SK equine site that they were going to start pushing for coggins test requirements at more shows... but who knows if it'll actually happen. I think it should, but I'm just one little fishy in the sea :)
I do feel a little unsafe taking my horses down to provinces where the testing is NOT a big thing... but I do know it's just a teeny tiny chance that they might get it and I guess I can't keep them in a bubble :p
