Doug so you know last time this became a serious issue it was illegal to transport horses from infected area in the USA to unaffected USA destinations.
Horse papers are always a concern I just got back 2 weeks ago from delivering a horse to ND with appropriate paper work. But because the horse was going to be down in the US for longer than 30 days I needed a USDA federal Vet. inspection paper filled out at Sweet Grass MT. which I did at $42 more.....
