URGENT NEWS ALERT

27 August 2007

Due to the seriousness of the Equine Influenza epidemic, Plaintree Farms has decided to initiate a full lock down for all horses entering and leaving the farm until the official all-clear is given.

This means that all clients, visitors and service personnel will not be allowed to visit the farm until the situation is clear.

Equine influenza is a national emergency that has placed the Australian horse industry at grave risk. We ask for your full understanding and support in this matter.

Henceforth the mares demand the greater care. When in the course of the months they are in foal. Allow them not to gallop in the swirling floods, But let them graze in the glades by brimming streams.
