I'm familiar with all of he large stables up there. Boarding my mare won't be an issue.

The recent EHV outbreak has me concerned. I have read that four stables across NE have been put on lockdown. The states with confirmed infections are CO, CA, UT and, I believe SD. I know NM and NV have had to euthanize a couple of horses but they have not released autopsy yet. I have even heard that CO is planning on shutting it's borders to horse transports. None in or out. So, this is something those of us in the equine world have to watch!

Does anyone know if any of the quarantined stables are in Omaha? I can't seem to find names yet.

There haven't been an suspected cases in either MS or LA, so I am not worried about my mare at the present. But I do not want to transport her and risk infection (and there is not a vax at this time).

I board at Riverview Arena and starting today we are on lockdown. I am not sure of any others but we were told it may be a few weeks before anyone can go in or out.

This is the latest that I've seen: http://www.aphis.usda.gov/vs/nahss/e...rep_051911.pdf

I will glad when this passes or at least controlled a bit better. I don't even want to take my horses to my local ring! I'm also selling two in order to bring one up there when we move. It has not made selling easy at all. I guess everyone heard about the case in FL, which is where a lot of our large, regional shows are.

We're actually on the other side of NE; 10 miles from CO.
I'm VERY concerned about this. My kids were supposed to have a handful of gymkhanas this summer in Colorado and I'm not sure I'm wanting to risk it... Worse than that, our own church is the entity putting them, so I hate to not show up too!

More concerning is the fact that my husband cowboys at a local feedlot and the guys are forever hauling horses in and out of there.
I can't decide if we'd be better off for him to bring our horses home and only haul them up when needed. Or, leave them up there and keep our herd at home "clean."

*sigh*

Default 7 horses from Nebraska were at the event...

5 barns were put in quarantine, the closest Lincoln, none in Omaha. There have been no confirmed, or even suspected, cases in Nebraska. Colorado is not closing it's borders. They are just requiring a vet to request a permit before crossing into Colorado.

Unless your horse is at high risk, I see no reason for panic. If I were showing cutting horses at a national level or directly boarding with those horses, I would be concerned. Those who were exposed at the cutting event handled the situation extremely well.

We attended a show in Lincoln two weekends ago with horses from many states hauled in and will be attending another show out of state in June. There have been no EHV-1 cases stemming from the Utah event in the breed or disciplines we show. I think the level of concern should be appropriate for your horse's risk. I would have a greater level of concern if we lived in Colorado, showed higher end cutting horses, or used a commercial hauler who may transport those horses.

Personally, I would have no qualms about bringing a clean horse into the Omaha area.

My horse has not been exposed to any other horses. I haven't been able to show this year due to my hectic personal life. I'm not worried about her.

HOWEVER, if the stables up there are quarantined or on lockdown, not allowing new horses to come in, what am I supposed to do with her? I highly doubt my landlord nor the HOA would allow me to put my 16h, witchy TB mare in my backyard lol I guess I will have to leave her here, in MS, with a friend until this crap is handled and the barns are letting new boarders in. Great... a FAT, witchy mare lol!

Default I really don't think you'll have a problem...

With the economy the way it is, I think most barns will be happy to accept another paying boarder from a "clean" state especially since you'll have a recent health certificate anyways. I don't envision you throwing your "spirited" tb in a western qh barn so the barns you may be considering are probably less rigid. Make a few calls to the barns you're considering. I bet you'll find sympathetic barn owners if you explain your situation. Your mare does not sound like a risk to current boarders. I've heard of just a few barns being closed to new boarders, but many more are not.

If EHV-1 was making the rounds again in the hunter/jumper world, I'd assume you would have a greater problem finding someone to take your mare. I'm not aware of any local tb heavy shows (like INHJA or NHJSSC) being canceled around here. There was a 4-H show canceled last weekend at the last minute, but that tends to be mostly aqha.

Don't fret. If I were in your position, I'd be bringing her.
