There's trouble in Farmington City, Utah, as you can clearly tell by this headline on the website of local NBC affiliate KSL-TV: "Horse herpes outbreak forces rodeo queens to ride stick ponies."

Sayeth one aspiring teen queen: "With a stick horse, it's a lot different because you have to do all the work, and I think it's going to be a lot more tiring." May it be the only time a herpes outbreak darkens your door, brave rodeo queen. [KSL.com]
