Dr Lindsay recommends these annual/bi-annual vaccinations at minimal :
The American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) recommends that all horses receive vaccinations against rabies, tetanus, West Nile Virus, and eastern/western encephalitis.
When does a horse need to be vaccinated? Generally, foals born to vaccinated mares should start an initial core vaccination schedule at six months old. They will need boosters when they are seven and eight months old. For the course of the horse's life, they will also need booster shots either annually or simi-annually.
Louisiana State Law: Each horse is required to have a current (with in one year) negative coggins test. Each horse shall have a brand, tattoo, or microchip as a form of identification.
