Best evidence is that EIA is spread by biting flies, not mosquitoes.  HIV
would probably spread the same if people spent all day standing 2 feet
apart, naked and let horse flies bite them.

I did not find any hard evidence of a specific incubation period.  30-60
days is usually required before a artificially infected horse is found to be
positive.  In the '80's WI state vet required 60 days of negative tests to
remove quarantine from herds in my saddle club.

There is good news:  Because EIA is the same type (note: not the same but
the same general type of virus), there is some HIV research money going into
EIA horses (you can  morally do experiments on horses you can't on humans)
and much learned about HIV will eventually transfer to EIA research.
