The Sister’s Rodeo begins June 10th, and with the concern over the Equine Herpes Virus in Oregon, we asked Sisters Rodeo Veterinarian, Doctor Tim Phillips what precautions are being taken. He says they will contact each participant that is bringing horses with a specific checklist of signs to watch for; and he may require owners of out of state horses to provide health certificates: “If we feel that there's an animal with signs that is attending the rodeo, of course, will be asked to leave. And we'll encourage them to swab the animal with a nasal swab technique to check for the DNA of the virus. That’s not something that we can make them do, but certainly something we can encourage them to do. And, as a veterinarian, I could require them to leave the rodeo premises." Phillips says they are altering the horse areas a bit: not allowing too close contact when the horses are not performing and they will require each horse to have individual water containers rather than a community water trough for the horses.
