UPDATED INFO in REF to our Wizard of Oz Fun Show on Saturday, April 23:
FUN SHOW IS ON! SEE YOU ALL THERE!
We have received a few calls in ref to the status of our fun show due to the Quarantine at Days End Farm Horse Rescue in Howard County. As directed by the guidance posted on the DEFHR (see below), we reached out the State Veterinarian with Maryland Dept of Agriculture. They have given us the GREEN light to proceed with having our show.
Their recommendation and ours as well is that IF you have recently adopted a horse from DEFHR or your horses have had any contact w/ DEFHR horses, play in safe and keep your horses home until DEFHR is given the all clear.
Yes, we are aware that the BEST Show Series has cancelled their 2 shows for this weekend. Keep in mind that their show series has a huge attendance rate on most days and that show participants do come from Howard County where the quarantined barn and horses are located.
Also - RAIN? So yes, we see the clouds today and understand the forecast is for some rain this afternoon/evening and POSSIBLY lingering into Saturday. Last forecast was a "few, lingering showers" for Saturday morning. Showers are NOT a show stopper - get your rain gear out folks. Registration opens at 9 am with show start time of 10 am. Showers could long be gone by then! The forecast is beautiful sunshine and 70+ for the afternoon. That's super nice weather gang for a show!
If the forecast should change or you have ANY concerns about the weather in the morning, Please CALL: Brigitte @ 301-399-1549
QUOTE (FROM DEFHR Website):
Quarantine in Place
A horse with atypical neurological symptoms tested positive for EHV-1. As a result, the farm has been placed on a strict 30-day quarantine as recommended by the MD State Veterinarian. Horses are being closely monitored.
Volunteer and educational activities will be modified, if you have questions about upcoming activities click here to e-mail DEFHR.
If you have specific questions regarding the current quarantine, please contact Maryland Department of Agriculture.
