Horse Flu Arrives At Arrowfield
John Messara confirmed Arrowfield Stud in the NSW Hunter Valley has been hit by the equine influenza virus. He told TVN: "Last week my son Paul had a few horses in his stables with equine influenza & of course it has since come across to us, starting with the dry mares. It has since got into the foaling area, so we have mares & foals coughing. The yearlings are yet to catch it strangely & neither have the stallions, although they are surrounded by it, so will get it eventually."
