Horse virus forces Sonoma Co. to cancel some events
SONOMA COUNTY, Calif. (KGO) -- A deadly horse virus has forced Sonoma County to cancel several equestrian events and prompted riders to pull more than 40 horses out of Santa Rosa's annual Rose Parade this weekend.
According to the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, two horses from Sonoma County participated in a show in Utah where the outbreak of equine virus is believed to have originated. Those horses have been quarantined, but some owners aren't taking any chances.
The virus is highly contagious and is spread through touch, air, or shared food or water.
