    Granted, that post started with "rumor has it" and I'm sure you haven't had a chance to confirm it, so I'll try not to get carried away, but that's what I was wondering would happen with Aiken. Now, perhaps I'm not following you, but are you sure they didn't stop by the PSJ Highfields, instead of whichever event was in the area? I've noticed people have mentioned the fear of it spreading around Zone 2, but how many people swing into the March Madness shows in Aiken on their way home? I honestly don't know, as I'm not a snowbirder. Can someone weigh in on that?

    So thankful for the responsible barn owners.

    Right?! Good on them! I'm sure they already had cash out there for putting on a show, too. Massive kudos.

    We arrived there the 18th, showed the wed, thurs with one horse in the first years and ticketed with the other, found out that Friday am at 9:38am a phone call from our trainer.

    I was still at hotel sleeping in getting ready to show in the Adults, soooo excited.

    Made the decision after calling our vet to pack up and leave, we potentially exposed for 3 days.

    Next called our groom said pack up we are leaving.

    Next call to trainer at home to pick up my 3 horses at my farm, told her about our situation. So we could arrive at an empty barn.

    Next called our neighbor to let her know and to call her vet and get any instructions we may need being next door.

    Next spoke to show vet to make sure we were not risking others and if our health cert was valid, all good.

    Checked out and drove home.

    We are self quarantine and are following bio-security measures until its been 21 days.

    I posted a very good article eveybody who is intested in this virus should read.

    Take the emotions and $$ out of the equation and we can all rest alittle easier that we are doing the right thing.

    Can you post the name of the barn so we can give them kudos?

    This is scary. Horses from my barn are in Aiken now and are coming back the end of next week.

    If anyone cares to dredge up the threads from last year's outbreak at Thermal, there were little to no consequences for the lack of quarantine. I don't know if the circumstances are exactly comparable, but there was no massive spread of disease from that show. We had horses come back from that show and our BM and vets were not concerned. The biggest impact was financial, as far as shows canceling or limping along with very low numbers. In other words, the sky didn't fall except on show organizers.

    Is the barn quarantined because of a sick horse or as a precautionary measure?

    Here is the link for the Thermal thread:
    http://www.chronofhorse.com/forum/sh...-Thermal-EHV-1

    At this point I have zero faith in HITS management to do what they are able to safeguard horses at their shows. Enough so that I wouldn't show there. Not that it's super-likely at this point anyway, so I'm not exactly making them lose revenue. But enough that I'm having second thoughts about my field trip out to Thermal because I'm just that annoyed..

    Is anyone else's vet recommending vaccinating for EHV-1. He says it may help by reving up the horses immune system, but it has no labeled effect for the mutant strain. He say we will probably have horses returning from HITS to our area soon.

    My vet recommended against it. Said it doesn't help with the neuro kind and vaccines of any kind can stress the horse.

    Granted, the authorities need to communicate better. However, any post that starts out " rumor has it" is not helpful.

    This situation is bad enough and rumors have a way of evolving, and start getting stated as fact, adding even more confusion.

Of course I want my boy home and the cost to keep him on day care for that time of his vacation will be considerable, but its the right thing to do.
    THANK YOU! This IS the right thing to do.
