Today we have had a confirmed strangles case at our yard, Stockley Farm, Near Calne, Wiltshire. This has only affected one horse at present. Temperatures have been taken and no other horses are showing symptoms at this stage. The yard is now on shut down and we are in the process of notifying everyone that this maybe relevant to. We feel that it is very important to be open and honest to spread awareness across the horse community and maintain our professionalism to ensure it spreads no further.
