A confirmed case of neurologic equine herpesvirus-1 (EHV-1) at an equine hospital in Leesburg, Va., has resulted in numerous hold orders at farms in Maryland and Virginia as horses released from the hospital after being exposed to the sick horse are tracked back to their home farms.
Officials in Maryland and Virginia are taking action after a horse had possible indirect exposure to neurologic equine herpesvirus-1.
The Marion duPont Scott Equine Medical Center in Leesburg, Va., has been awarded a $25,000 grant from Thoroughbred Charities of America and a $5,000 grant from the Maryland Horse Industries Board to help construct and equip new laboratory facilities designed to support its growing equine research program.
Thoroughbred Charities of America's board of directors has announced the approval of $1.1-million in grants to 52 organizations.
