A student livery horse arrived at the beginning of term that had followed the Yard biosecurity protocol, which included a negative strangles test result within three weeks of arriving, a normal temperature and no clinical signs.

Our livery yard had a strangles outbreak just a few months after we set up the business. It was a really tough time. But the vet was great and we got quarantine set up really quickly so that only two horses on the site were ill. The second horse to get strangles was very sick, it was really sad to see.

We are one of the biggest livery and training yards in our local area, with around 50 horses living here at any time. Unfortunately, we have had two strangles outbreaks in the past, and the apathy, anxiety and frustration that develop among owners cannot be underestimated.
