TODAY'S THOUGHT

In a shocking contradiction to what we deserve, God offers grace that stretches further than all our sin. It is precisely that great scandal of grace that provokes us to bend our knee and live to glorify the Lord of grace.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota horse owners are on high alert amid the surfacing of a neurological disease.
 
     The Bismarck Tribune reports that the state High School Rodeo Association and the Junior High Rodeo Division have canceled several rodeos in the wake of Lil Sis, a barrel racing horse who died last month.
 
     Tests show Lil Sis had a neurological disease caused by a form of equine herpes called EHV-1. The horse's owners presume Lil Sis got infected when she was at the Bowman County Fairgrounds Indoor Arena this year.
 
     EHV-1 can be spread through air, contaminated equipment, clothing and hands. State veterinarian Susan Keller says there have been about five lab-confirmed cases of EHV-1 in North Dakota, but only one of the neurological form.
 
     Keller says owners can vaccinate horses against EHV-1.
