A cyclist stopped by while I was working out in our flower farm part of the property next to the street this last weekend. She had sneaked into the construction project off of the Poudre River bike trail and wanted to know what street this was. She couldn’t believe it when I told her she was on N. Shields St. She was right. It is unrecognizable. The heavy rains have not helped. Except for the part in our east pasture, which is a city project, what you see here is our latest on the N. Shields St. Corridor improvement project. Click on this link if you cannot see the video above.
Given the forecast for the rest of the week, the bugs will be dead and unable to spread disease. This marks an end to our V.S. special procedures at PRS, effective Saturday, Nov. 15. This will give people an opportunity to go to this weekend’s CSU show if they want.We recommend avoiding close contact with other horses. Chances are very slim, but still watch for horses with mouth or hoof sores and drooling in case they got infected at the last possible second.Also, with the cold weather, we are moving into our winter disease season. This means stay away from sniffing noses, and shared water or feed at public places. Stay away from cough-ers, snotty noses, goopy eyes. These are all good policies any time.
We are back to our normal two-week quarantine for incoming horses, and will resume accepting new horses in 10 days.
Good riddance, V.S.
This was a rough summer, disease-wise. Thank you for your support as we sacrificed to keep our horses healthy.
Due to the ongoing Colorado vesicular stomatitis (VS) outbreak, we require a health certificate five days old or less, and you will need to get another veterinary clearance for release into our general population after your two-week quarantine, see our rates page, is over. We discourage off-property travel and prohibit short-term trailer-ins at this time. (Email us for details.) These special rules will likely remain in effect until two weeks after the last frost.
