Denton strangles - update
As an absolute amateur when it comes to horses I can make no judgements only observations. It is pretty obvious the horses on the bottom field next to the river are not infected* as they all looked happy and were behaving as usual.
The horses in the fields close to the farm all look in good shape too but sadly the horses in the fields either side of the dirt track just over the motorway bridge all look pretty sad. Instead of eating grass like the rest of the horses they just appear to stand motionless and starring into space. I assume these are the infected horses. Let's hope the outbreak is soon under control and life can back to normal.
*There was one horse (top picture) on the lower field which did have a runny nose. I don't know if that should be of any concern, but he didn't look ill in anyway so it's probably nothing.
