    I bought a mini mare in December from a slaughter pen and had her quarantined for roughly 25 days, after which I started using the same water buckets to cary water to her and to my qh gelding. A few days later I put them together. She had a snotty nose for awhile and some discharge from one...

    The barn I board at has a strangles outbreak. I have never been through anything like this before but no one there seems concerned. There is about 15 horses infected (including mine) and no quarantine in place. The vet has been out once to confirm strangles and left banamine to reduce fevers...

    Just recently, my whole herd has gotten over strangles. None died, thank God, it wasn't that serious type. It has been quarantined with all of our horses having shots/vaccines and such. We found out early that it was the type most susceptible to penicillin and smart us, it was the first thing we...

    I'm moving my horse on Sunday to a new stable. The previous stable, which he has been at for about 3 years, did not believe in giving vaccinations to their horses. Now the new stable requires Distemper, tetanus, and virus flu shot. I have someone to administer them, I'm just wondering if these...
