Sound almost like some kind of radiation poisoning, Makes you wonder whether the hay the horses are eating is of GMO origin? :think:

Could be, similar symptoms.

Thought it would be more easily identifiable by an expert though.

i like a gamble now and again , mostly racehorses and i remember about 6 or 7 years back there was an outbreak in the uk that resulted in racing being banned for about a year although im nearly sure it was a strain of mad cow disease but as you say a vet should be able to spot this fairly rapidly . interesting.

[quoteSymptoms:

Symptoms include listlessness, elevated temperature, respiration and pulse, weakness, loss of coordination, abortion in broodmares and decline in overall health and vitality. The fever tends to spike then decrease, sometimes within a short time. Jaundice and fluid retention may develop. Small lesions may form on the tongue and other mucous membranes such as cheeks and inner nostrils.

Effects:



The virus damages the horse's immune system and is closely related to the human HIV virus. During the early stages of the disease, horses suffer from fever and hemorrhaging. About 30% will die within the first stage of the disease. Those who survive may experience a return of symptoms, recover then experience the symptoms again with less severity. The symptoms may return in response to stress such as hot weather, hard work, drug sensitivities or breeding.][/quote]


Don't sound like it to me.....Maybe they are testing a new ebola virus or the next version of it as a new biological weapon. Test it on horses before they tweek it so that infects humans.
