MERCED, Calif. An outbreak of a highly contagious and possibly fatal virus in horses that started at the National Cutting Horse Association's Western National Championships in Odgen, Utah, has claimed the life of at least one horse in California, one in Utah and sickened at least four in Stanislaus County, Calif.

The equine herpes-1 infection showed up first at the Utah event, held between April 30 and May 8. One of the big money-winners at the show, a 7-year-old horse was diagnosed May 9 with the virus in Colorado. There were 500 horses at the event, with at least two positive cases and one death. There were 54 competitors from California.

Steve Lyle, spokesman for the California Department of Food and Agriculture, said one horse in California has been euthanized, at a cutting horse event on May 13 in Bakersfield held at the Kern County Fairgrounds. The horse had been to the Utah event also and had severe neurological signs.

Fuck that. I say anyone that wants to get in should be allowed to. There is something fundamentally wrong with their thought processes and they should be weeded out. Maybe you should add a one way gate to the fence.

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice

Hold on a second...


I thought they were soul sucking pig fuckers. Are you telling me that now they are soul sucking horse fuckers as well?

Are they pitching or catching?

If horses can find a way to break your heart or your bank account they will. Though 'deadly outbreak' is a wee bit sensationalist lol. I lost a horse to West Nile, does that mean BC had a 'deadly outbreak'? 37.gif

Not like the media to be sensationalist and create diversion from Fukushima, failed economic policies, perpetual war, etc.
