ATTENTION EVERYONE WHO WAS AT THE LIBERTY SHOW AUGUST 2: A member just contacted me with news that their horse contracted a bacterial infection at some point in the last 7 to 10 days. There is no way of knowing if the infection was passed from another horse or place. The only place they have visited recently was the barrel race at liberty. The symptoms started off with the mare appearing sore and having trouble walking almost like she pulled a muscle. Later that night she wouldn't eat. Upon the first vet visit all tests including blood work showed everything was fine. Two days later the owner returned to the vet due to lack of improvement and 2 huge buckets of fluid were removed from her lungs. The fluid was tested and confirmed to be a bacterial infection and the mare is struggling to stay alive right now. If your horse is displaying any of these symptoms contact your vet immediately as well as have them contact Waller Equine for more information. Waller has stated that sometimes these symptoms take anywhere from 7 to 10 days to start appearing and then advance rapidly. Some horses might even be silent carriers and display no symptoms at all. Please feel free to contact me privately or publicly if you have any questions or if your horse has also had symptoms.
