Hi Everyone,

A strange one but thought it worth seeing if any of you know of any research or evidence surrounding electricity pylons (the big tower like structures with 1000's of volts through the cables) either being in a horse field or with the cables going over the top?

I am looking in to buying a paddock with just that scenario - the high voltage cables.

Research in the UK that I can find states a statistical relevance to childhood leukaemia in humans but not clearly a causal effect as the research was not controlled and therefore there was also statistical evidence pointing to nutrition and to lack of exposure to pathogens in infancy causing a weakend immune system. I certainly can't find anything relating to horses.

On either side of the paddock are fields with horses in them so its obviously relatively safe but will it be safe for my pregnant mare (assuming she comes back from stud pregnant - keep your fingers crossed!)?

Thanks for your help,

Emma

I know a lady who breeds 1-2 mares a year and her pasture has this running the entire length of it. Her mares/foals never seemed to be affected and they've been in the same field for 3 years now, but maybe she just got lucky. Sorry, I don't have any true statistical info for you. Good luck, hope your mare's in foal!
