  1. We just had two horses die, different farms eating the same horse feed. The only similarity. Any others in SW Virginia area?

  2. It’s a terrible tragedy. 22 horses had eaten this food for a month. There is no hope for 18 of them, which if not dead by now, will be euthanized. More are ill. What I don’t understand is: why was only ONE stable, Masterpiece, effected? That seems very odd. Also, of the four lots that you listed, do they know which one killed these horses?
