Weld, Boulder, and Larimer Counties Have the Most Cases Of Vesicular Stomatitis in Colorado

We are diligent with fly spray and fly masks in my barn, even more so now, with the threat of Vesicular Stomatitis. In Colorado, 201 horses and 3 cows have tested positive for VS.

The Colorado’s State Veterinarian’s Office currently has 184 locations under quarantine after horses and cows tested positive for Vesicular Stomatitis. County totals are:
Boulder County –  60
Larimer County –  38
Weld County – 67
Broomfield County – 1
Douglas County – 1
El Paso –  1
Jefferson County – 7
Adams County –  9
See the full report here:Colorado Dept of Ag.

 These pictures from the US Dept of Ag.’s website shows the lesions affecting horses mouths. Ears, sheaths, and other areas can also host VS lesions.


If you click on the next picture, you’ll go to CSU’s hour long video on VS. -it’s excellent.

Due to the Vesicular Stomatitis outbreak, the stables and trails at Chattfield State Park have been closed until further notice. According to the Park and the State Veterinarian, no horses are to be taken out of the park or brought in.

Rocky Mountain Saddle Club will go ahead with tomorrow’s (08.23.14) show near Wellington with vet checks on all participating horses entering the facility. Organizers felt this was preferable to health certificates.  There will be a $2
charge for the vet check.

Larimer County Horseman’s Association has rescheduled their Poker Ride at Lory to October 25 because of the outbreak of VS.
