January 1st - New Year's Day Stone Soup Ride cancelled:
After consulting with local vets and out of an abundance of caution we
have decided to postpone the New Years Day Stone Soup ride until the
EHV-1 virus outbreak in Woodinville is over. It is recommended that
horses not be trailered around until the danger has past. Sixteen horses
at Gold Creek Stables have tested positive and seven have had to be
euthanized. Although there have been no cases on Whidbey Island the
serious results of catching this highly contagious virus have convinced
us postponing the ride is the right decision.
Happy New Year to you and your horse/mule friends.
