I do have to agree with you anebel. I know a horse can contract it after being tested and coming up negative... but the only way we can even ATTEMPT to stop or control it is by diligent testing. But, on the other hand, it sounds like lots of people down there don't bother and it sounds like I'm going to have a hard time finding a place to keep my horses where they do require tests.
On that note, I contacted another trainer today who does require coggins tests. She will keep Atlas at her place in quarantine though and do the test there which is great. I just sent her an email full of questions and hopefully I hear back today because she sounds pretty good. She's based out of Gibbons, AB and her name is Amy Moffitt, have you heard of her?
