NO Cases of EHV-1, EHM in Indiana
(20 May 2015)

INDIANAPOLIS -- —In spite of rampant rumors permeating social media, Indiana has NO cases of EVH-1 (equine herpes virus) or EHM (equine herpes myeloencephalopathy) under investigation or quarantine. The Indiana State Board of Animal Health (BOAH) has been receiving many phone calls, emails and messages to ask about status of horses in the state and assess the safety of traveling to Hoosier venues. Much of the information seems to stem from inaccurate social media reporting and confusion about infected animals at shows.

BOAH continues to monitor the situation in other states, where the disease has been surfacing.

As always the agency advises horse owners to practice sound biosecurity at home and away, —especially in locations where horses are gathered together or commingled. Managers of equine events/shows and facilities are advised to do the same.

Just what is an American Quarter Horse? If you have ever seen a horse in one of rodeo's timed events, been along for work on a ranch or watched a Western on the big or small screen, 9 times out of 10 you have seen an American Quarter Horse.

These heavily muscled, compact horses could run a short distance over a straightaway faster than any other horse, and the fastest were called Celebrated American Quarter Running Horses by English colonists in the 1600s. In 1940 a registry was formed to preserve the breed which officially became the American Quarter Horse.
