    Fall shots??

    Okay well the vet is suppose to be coming out to the barn early next week to give the horses fall shots. The barn manager told me that they usually give Flu, Rhino and Stangles in the winter. I thought you only gave flu and rhino though. Morgan got flu, stangles, potomac, EWT,rabies, and west nile back in June. I was under the inmpression from my old place that all I needed for winter was a ful booster and Rhino. So I guess my question is... what do you guys give in the fall and also since she got strangles in the spring, do i really need to give her another?

    Thanks guys. Since she got strangles, potomac (twice), EWT, and Rabies plus flu back in june. I am just going to give her another flu and then rhino for the winter. She didn't go anywhere all summer, and she won't be going anywhere in the winter so i think she will be okay without another strangles (plus that will save me $25).
