– From Stewart’s Arena and Stables:
“We have placed our arena under voluntary quarantine. As most of you may have heard, there is an EHV-1 outbreak up north in/near Woodinville where several horses have had to be euthanized and several others are affected. I have consulted with a few different vets, all of whom have recommended that we do not allow any horses on the property, and if a horse that is boarded at the barn leaves, it may not return until we lift the quarantine. Our #1 priority is keeping all of the horses safe. And please keep the owners and horses up north in your thoughts & prayers.”
