[RC] Strangles in SE region - rides2far

can keep popping up. Some of the big barns give all the horses  
antibiotics if any of the horses get sick, just to prevent this.

What I read said this would just delay symptoms, they'd be protected
until they went off the antibiotics and then get it. If you were *sure*
you got away from the contaminant it would help, but if they would still
be exposed after they got off it would not.  Again, taking a temp gave
you a jump on everything. If your horse's temp jumped.. (103 I think was
what they said) you separate that one quickly *before* it starts
spreading it.
