A Portland-area horse has tested positive for a neurological form of the equine herpes virus traced to a horse show in Utah.  It's the first case confirmed in Oregon. But this horse did not attend the show, instead contracting the potentially deadly disease through close contact with other horses that did. The equine herpes virus is not transmissible to people, but it is a serious disease to horses and they can die as quickly as four days. Dr. Wayne Schmotzer is with the Bend Equine Medical Center; he says in his clinic, the recommendation is that unnecessary horse travel be avoided: "Lastly, people will ask, is there anything I can do for my horse? There is no vaccine.” He says there are no suspected cases yet of the virus in Central Oregon.
