Just weeks after Arizona contained an outbreak of horse herpes, a stallion in Maricopa County has tested positive for an STD.

According to officials at the Arizona Department of Agriculture, a stallion has tested positive for Contagious Equine Metrititis, resulting in the quarantine of five other horses that were exposed to the animal.

According to ADA officials, the disease can cause "spontaneous abortions" and infertility in mares.

"This disease can be carried by stallions and mares and transmitted even through modern breeding practices of artificial insemination and embryo transfer"," Dr. John Hunt, ADA associate director for animal services, says. "Because many animals don't show symptoms, CEM can be difficult to detect and control."

Farm records show that the stallions tainted semen already has been shipped to three states for insemination.

The disease was detected when plans were made to ship the 4-year-old Arabian stallion's semen overseas -- to ship horse semen internationally, it must be tested for diseases like CEM.

"The disease can be spread among stallions if strict cleanliness standards are not maintained during the collection of semen," the ADA says. CEM, officials say, can be treated with antibiotics.

There's no evidence that the disease affects humans.

The infected horse, and other exposed horses, were being held by state animal-health authorities.

After all the educational commercials, town hall meetings and time donated by every actor and actress in Hollywood, these sex mad horses haven't learned anything.

Most people have herpes/hiv/hpv may feel lonely and shamed. But 70 million are afflicted with STD in the U.S. alone and an estimated over 400 million worldwide. There is an exclusive community STDslove. com for singles and friends with STD. If you just need to find someone to talk to or need help or advice, this is the best place. Never feel lonely again!

I have herpes and I am an engineer who works for the largest STD dating and support site STDslove. com. I have to tell you a secret, you can choose not to believe me. But the truth is that this site has more than 1,880,000 members and about 80% members are good looking in my estimation.

Unfortunately, STD rates soar worldwide and most people with STDs don't even know that they have them. The government should grant more money for STD education to lower the rates of STD transmission.

Could be. Although, thanks to J.D., the two will never be able to tie the knot.
