As representative for the American Association of Riding Schools, I received telephone requests this week from two Michiganders needing to re-home their horse. Both horses are free to a good home. I do not know the owners nor the horses. The first is offered by Mike Robinson, who has a 16-hand, 18-year-old chestnut appendix; who is well trained and good with trail obstacles. He is blind in one eye; but Mike says it does not impair his performance. Mike can be reached at 313-670-4203. The second is offered by a woman named Donna and her daughter, Brandy; who live near Dundee. Donna has a 28-year-old Arabian who has been ridden, but is ornery. When I asked for a definition for ornery, Brandy said, "Well, he doesn't like to be caught but, once he is, he's fine." With no disrespect intended, the conversation led me to believe that maybe they don't a lot about catching horses. You can reach Donna at 734-529-9395, and Brandy at 248-277-0674.

MDARD Update: April 7, 2015 5:04 pm

A fourth horse was recently found to be positive for EHV-1. This horse is the second horse to be found positive on a quarantined farm in Saginaw County. The horse is under veterinary care. This means that there are 2 positive horses (1 was already euthanized) at the Livingston County quarantined index farm and 2 positive horses at a quarantined Saginaw County farm.

MDARD continues to follow up on all horses potentially exposed to the first Michigan EHV-1 positive horse reported on March 19. At this time, we consider all horses that attended a March 7 event in Barry County to be at the highest risk of exposure. We know from the progression of this outbreak that a secondary transmission is occurring. In other words, horses that attended the March 7 event may have been infected, shown only minimal signs of disease (fever, possibly a runny nose) and spread the disease to another horse.

If you have a horse that attended the March 7 event in Barry County and brought your horse home where there are other horses, those other horses are still at risk for getting and spreading disease. As MDARD finds these situations, additional quarantines may be placed for enforced isolation and monitoring of horse health.

There has been a lot of rumor regarding a travel ban for Michigan horses, this is untrue. Healthy horses who have had no exposure are under no travel restrictions. The best thing you can do for your horse is make informed choices. For example, if you had a horse at the March 7 event in Barry County, keep that horse, and all other horses, at your farm or stable until the likelihood of disease spread is minimized. The possibility of disease spread is minimized when all horses at the farm or stable have had no fever or other signs of disease for 28 days.

For horses who may be traveling out of state, you should work with your local veterinarian to obtain an interstate health certificate and your vet will determine if your horse should travel.

MDARD is compiling a “Frequently Asked Questions” list that will be posted tomorrow outlining quarantines and what that means; enforcement; bio-security, and more on the [www.michigan.gov] webpage and on this Facebook page - [www.facebook.com]

Hello everyone! I just wanted to get the word out that I will be cleaning my trail May the 2nd and 3rd for anyone that would like to come and help. My trail is between Rapid River (Kalkaska) and Scheck's. Pat Galloup will also be cleaning her trail that weekend from Rapid River to Goose Creek. We decided to camp at Rapid River and work on them together. And by all means bring your horse so you can some fun. All help is very much appreciated, I will be in Rapid River camp Friday afternoon. looking forward to seeing you there, it should be fun.

Family came to Durand and gathered his personal items and signed for his remains. There was nothing in the Detroit News and it appears that no obituary was written for him. I'm so sorry. The friends he made at the Durand Center mourned him and are missing him greatly.
