Joe, that is a good point. I think that a lot of how likely a test is to be positive depends on where you live. If you live in South Georgia, South Alabama, or Florida, you have a much greater chance of a positive. Equine Infectious Anemia is a terrible disease. It causes chronic illness and can spread through a whole herd. It has been many years since I saw a positive, but I am mostly in academia now. I don't think that a lot of positive Coggins tests are being reported in Georgia right now. I'm not sure about other states.
