'In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag. We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language. And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.' - Theodore Roosevelt 1907

Well, the ones that come to mind immediately are:

Infectious Equine Anemia (I believe this is what the Coggins test is for, but I could be wrong)
Eastern and Western Encephalitis - spelling isn't right, but it's Sleeping Sickness
West Nile

There are also at least a dozen more that I can't remember the names of.  Is one of your horses sick, or are you just looking to expand your knowledge?  Hopefully it's the latter.  :icon_smile:
