I'm for it, and against it -
I'm against it because, say my vet comes out, April 26th at 1:00pm and draws Nelson's blood. Then after I turn him out around 3:00pm, he gets bit my a mosquito that is infected.....so Nelson's blood test gets ran, and comes back negative, but guess what...he's not. So I go to HT's, and he now infects every other horse he's around.
I'm for it, because if the blood test comes back positive, the Vets and the State knows where the infected mosquito's are coming from *area wise*
I have to get coggins done, because we are Eventers and Coggins is required for every single entry to any HT of the season. Without it, I cannot compete.
