Notice to Horse Owners: An agreement between Idaho, Oregon and Washington exempting Coggins testing for transport of horses across state lines has been lifted.  According to Idaho State Department of Agriculture officials, horses being transported between the three states will now be required to have a Coggins test from an accredited veterinarian in the last 12 months.
