A second horse has tested positive for Equine Herpes Virus in Oregon. The horse, which came in close contact with horses that were at the recent Utah horse show, is located in Umatilla County. Bruce Pokarney with the Oregon Department of Agriculture says 20 Oregon horses were at the show and the two that have tested positive were not at the show, but were in close physical contact with horses that did. "At this point, we believe, because we've accounted for all of the animals that did go to the show, and those animals they've been in close contact with, we believe there's little risk of the virus spreading to other locations in the State at this time." Pokarney says the animals will remain quarantined for two to three weeks to allow the virus to run its course, but a small number of horses have died from the virus. He adds that the two horses are not showing symptoms of the virus at this time and keeping them quarantined will help them shed the virus in due time.
