Then I doubt she will be arriving late next week.
She's either had strangles, is a carrier of it and needs treatment before you take her on, I wouldn't want your horse living with mine yet put it that way.

Hopefully she arrives late next week. She is having a guttural pouch procedure on Monday due to high antibodies from strangles blood test
:oops:
The guttural flush procedure according to the vet should clean her tubes out. Contents will be tested and if level is down she needs to be moved to new yard within three days. This has also been confirmed with the new yards vet.

My horse also had to have this done when I bought him but thankfully like yours we were soon given the all clear. Good luck with the move, it is the most exciting and most stressful thing to buy a new horse.
