On Friday, October 26th, in the center of Roial Varmblood Studbook Netherlands (KVPN) in Ermelo, the variant EHV-1 rhinopneumonievisus has determined one of the stalions from the autumn performance test. There was also a stallion with fever and cattle that showed a different form of movement in a step, but these two stallions were tested negative on EHV-1 in a study by Animal Health Service. The three stallions were again tested on November 6, and the results of the EHV-1 test were negative for all three stalions. No other stools with EHV-1 symptoms were added.
In consultation with Professor Marianne Sloet, a specialist in internal horse disease at the Veterinary Faculty in Utrecht, it was decided to continue testing the performance of the present stalions. If the current stallions are now picked up by owners, it is advisable to put these horses in quarantine for at least 14 days. In general, other stallions remain in Ermel until November 24, and then 4 weeks after the last case of fever has passed well.
KVPN Center – along with the day of evaluation and final presentation – is again open to owners and stakeholders. They have access to the KVPN office and the Villem-Alekanderhalhal stand. Taverns remain closed to third parties until the final presentation. All stable workers and riders will continue to work in accordance with the strict hygienic protocol until further notice, with the disinfection of the nuts and clothes changing among others. Removing the KVPN fertilizer takes place at its own location.
