2 March 2013: Equine Herpes Virus – EHV-1 outbreak in Florida

The Florida Department of Agriculture has confirmed that a second horse associated with the Ocala Equine Herpes Virus 1 (EHV-1) has presented with neurological signs. To date, there have been a total of 7 horses linked to the Ocala outbreak (two neurological cases, and five having tested positive with no evidence of neurologic disease being seen).

ANCCE Revision
Gaining entry into the Spanish Stud book is a 2 step process. #1) Inscription #2) Revision. The inscription process is generally done for foals but can be done at any age provided that both parents are registered in the Spanish Studbook with “Apto” Approved breeding status.

The process involves getting an approved veterinarian to complete paperwork and draw blood from the horse being inscribed. The owner must complete the International Request for Service >>> and submit all paperwork and samples to the USPRE office.

Revision is the final step for entry into the Spanish Stud book in Spain, usually done at age 3 -by their birth date, or older. It involves a series of measurements taken by licensed ANCCE Studbook Officials to insure the horse meets breed standards. Horses are also asked to walk, trot, and canter for movement assessment. Stallions 4 yrs and older have an under saddle functionality requirement. The functionality test is optional for mares. Revision Tours usually occur twice per year in the US, Spring and Fall.
