Oh, thank goodness I am not alone dealing with this horrific condition!

Makes me feel so much better knowing I have others to turn to who are also dealing with the same nightmare.

Very comforting!

So that is what has been happening with my mare. I was wondering what was up with the rest of the horses in my barn, and I unknowingly let my horse get infected with this terrible disease. Please keep us updated on any possible vaccines in the future. This is such a terrible terrible disease, at least they finally identified it.

I think my horses are immune to this disease, thank god
One I just about have to hang off his head to get the bridle on, one needs to learn that eating the actual bit will not work and tongue over the bit does no good either.. And the other, well she's just a snotty cow although the last one can be ridden in a bitless bridle, I think I shall be safe, but neighbour has a new horse... wonder if her horse Ally is infected

OH NO OH NO OH NO! Tanoka *cry cry* is getting the sickness! She's started to-to-to BACK UP without me having to touch her! And also I can go in her stall and she will STAND STILL as I brush her! Oh and also these horses across from my friends house are terribly infected! They just stand there while you run around them and touch em and stuff. One is so bad cuz it's partly Blind too! Its tragic...

If you want a stable friendship, get a horse.
