  1. Individual horses (1|horse) and farms (1|farm) were random effects in all models. Fixed effects were days post arrival (days), auction phase (auction), duration of transport (duration), pyrexia, nasal discharge (discharge), and EHV-4 DNA detection
  2. FGM, faecal glucocorticoid metabolites; EHV-4, equine herpesvirus-4
