    Thanks Smile n Me for update - and Mod 1 on other thread. Very sad and a horrible way to die. Thankfully the other person is improving (they say).

    The clinic is defending their infectious control and hygiene practices yet the official word is Hendra is not easily passed from horse to human..?? Can't have it both ways. Unless direct from the bats of course...

    In shock really.............and there are two ladies still sick. Not as contagious as EI but deadly to humans. My friends horse was meant to be released last week from redlands but has been kept there. I hope that it all ends soon and the sick ladies recover and the horses that did not contract Hendra do get to go home. Poor Ben's family, my heart goes out to them :(
