    I don't know what your horse had, but it doesn't really sound like PHF. I live within a few miles of the Potomac River and my vet sees PHF cases every year. We vaccinate religiously, and anything...

    I do, and I love them. It completely solved meal-time drama for our field boarders. Someone does have to hang out until the old man finishes, but I try to use that time to fill a water trough or...
