My thoughts are with you guys who live in the area where the horse was diagnosed with this nasty virus. I hate this virus. It's scary for any horse owner.
We used to have large colonies of bats in my area and they used to fly over every night. Mum constantly worried about my horse. I haven't seen them since Yasi though. Hopefully she blew them all away? Maybe one positive thing that she done
I will definitely be getting my horse vaccinated when it becomes available.

Think that Yasi removed most of the bats food source in one fell swoop, hence the likely hood that they were forced to move further south in search of other food.

As I said in an earlier post my horses will be getting vaccinated asap, have already told vet to put me on the wait list. BUT having seen the attitude and behaviour of SOME people during the EI dramas I think that with out a doubt that there will be huge toodo when a final price and requirements for competitors are announced.

Good news FF, lets hope it stays that way.

For those that are interested, suggest you watch channel 10 this evening as Dr. Deborah Middleton, Project Leader of the Hendra Vaccine Trials, will be on the 7pm Project on channel 10 tonight talking about HeV Vaccine.

just released by BIO QLD....

Biosecurity Queensland is managing a second confirmed case of Hendra virus at Mt Alford in the Boonah area.

One horse on the property became sick on 20 June and was later euthanased. A second horse became sick on 1 July & samples from this horse were sent to BQ for testing. The horse was euthanased later that night.

Test results overnight have confirmed this as a case of Hendra virus infection.

not good news at all.. Mt Alford boonah is about 55 mins west of the current hendra case

Hmmmmm ok, i'm not too sure on much of qld's bat populations etc but we are planning a move in the very near future (as soon as our house sells LOL) up around Gympie - do you know if bats and hendra are a likely problem around that area? I know very little about hendra itself, not something we have to worry about over here so i guess i'm a little freaked out about the whole idea It seems very scary - with children to protect as well as horses to protect i think i might have to do some serious research but are there any simple things we can do to minimise the risk???
