Re: vaccines ppid horses

Tetanus and the encephalitis viruses are indeed deadly but encephalitis (other than WNV) may not be an endemic problem in your area. You would have to research that with the health department.  As for tetanus, it depends on when he was last vaccinated. Horses that had correct vaccination as a foal and yearly boosters can go at least 3 years between boosters . In people, it's 10 years.
