Michelle runs a thoroughbred horse training business 4 km from Randwick race course in Sydney. Each morning she takes 6 horses from her stables to the track at Randwick for training as she does not have facilities to exercise her horses where they are stabled. The horses are then returned to her stables after completion of their training each day. With the diagnosis of Equine influenza at Randwick in August 2007 a complete ban was placed on the transport of horses within the state of NSW. The restrictions meant that the horses were confined to their stables unable to travel to Randwick for exercise, or be turned out to graze. During the second week of their forced confinement to the stables, Michelle noticed that one of the horses, a 3 year-old gelding, developed the stereotypical behaviour of ‘windsucking’.
