So I board my horse at a fairly large boarding facility, and he is a pasture horse now. My moms horse, my friends horse, and my horse all get wormed regularly, and stool samples checked. So my horse had a stool sample checked this summer, he was negative, my moms horse in september had large strongyles and wormed with quest plus just like the vet told us. So to make a long story short: My mom's horse got sick a couple weeks ago, and had the vet out and they couldn't figure out what was wrong. Well next day she had diarrhea, and loaded with worms. So I decided to have my horse and my friends horse checked, my horse had rounds, my friends horse had rounds and strongyles. We have all three now done a power pack. Oh yeah, my mom's horse and friends horse were both wormed in december with quest plus. My horse and my friends horse are in the same pasture, my moms horse in a stall.
So we went to the barn owners, because we know that half the horses in our pasture are not wormed. We told them what happen and asked if they could let the other owners know that our horses had worms so that they could get their horses checked and wormed if needed. Yeah, well they told us they would if they had the time, and that they are all on their own worming schedule... Uh yeah so are ours and they have worms. So what would you guys do as barn owners/horse owners? We want to tell everyone, because it's not going to go away if everyone is infected and not getting treated. Power packs are like 80 bucks I don't have that money to spend all the time or a colic bill.
