I had a 13yr old TB gelding put down a little over two months ago due to EPM. The progression of the disease was the worst thing I have ever had to see and I am praying to God that I am just being paranoid now.
Two weeks ago my husband and I bought a yearling filly. She is usually fairly energetic out in the pasture with the other horses. This morning we noticed she was pretty "depressed". Walking with her head down, moving slowly. Not standing in with the rest of the herd..standing away from them. We also noticed she was dragging her back toes when she walks.
I have already called my vet and he will be here today. Do I have a reason to suspect EPM in this filly so soon after bringing her home? Do you think I'm just being paranoid and it could just be something else? Its over 100 degrees here today...maybe its the heat?
The other horses are not and have never shown ANY signs.
