Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

If a mare dies from AHS and leaves a very young foal,what are the chances of that foal developing AHS?

It depends on the foals immune strength - I would think that the foal would be at great risk and all possible protection measures should be taken to protect the foal like stabling behind shade cloth from 3pm to 9am and using repellants.
