Just remember to booster all your vaccines properly. I feel that you are a little behind in starting vaccines at 6 months. Be careful moving him until his vaccine series is finished. Last thing you need is a sick baby. Good Luck!
EEE,WEE, T, FLu/Rhino (4 months, 5 months, 6 months)
WNV (5 months, 6 months)
Rabies (6 months)
Dont forget your strangles if you are moving your colt - ask for the intranasal - extra cost but much better (less reaction)
Don't worry, I will make sure I follow through with the booster's properly.
The colt was given to me, I had NO control over what shots he got when until now.
He needs to have the vaccine series finished before he can go anywhere. He also needs his coggins and will be getting the stangles (I will make sure I ask for the intranasal).
All the vets that I have delt with just give the shots then the boosters in whatever amount of time...
none give at 4 months, 5 months, and 6 months that I know of...
My game plan is:
Get the vet out early next week, get the shots and get him started on a deworming plan.
I am hoping I can move him around March 1st (by which time he should be able to get his boosters done too).
I talked to the potential new barn Friday and I did mention to her where he was coming from, the situation I'm in, and that a 30-or so day quarantine SHOULD happen before I put him out with another horse or put him near another horse...
At the end of September when I first started going around this barn there was a horse all alone in a shed... I didnt think anything of it... however it was brought to my attention in a later conversation with the barn owner that the horse was leaving soon... He was just there to be quarantined/recover for a month before going to a new barn... HE HAD STANGLES
The barn sees a lot of horses from New Holland, and I felt I needed to stress this with the potential barn, I would feel TERRIBLE if my horse brought a cold with him, or worse (even though he is very healthy besides the lack of vet care, farrier care, and deworming that is....) The barn owner of the potential barn was thrilled with my honesty is said not to worry, we can find a place to put him away from everyone else for a while
. (She was just going to put him in with a colt his own age at first till I mentioned the above)
