Horses to get Flu shots

Jazz 9 October 2007 4

After hearing the bold declaration from the ACT Chief Vet that horses in the ACT wouldnt be vaccinated for the Equine Flu that’s playing havoc to race meets on the east coast it seems that Thoroughbreds in the ACT are set to start getting jabbed in the next few days according to two articles on ABC Online.

I didnt even realise that we had a Chief Vet, but at least we have the news that Melbourne Cup day is now on November 6.

Likely to rise actually because vacinated horses are microchipped and not to be eaten by anything.

I wonder if the price of pies will come down shortly then?

I’d give them a bullet and get on with life. However, not everybody has a dislike for horses.

Can’t they just give them a glass of Lemsips to drink and rub Vicks on their chests?

Always works for me!
