It sounds like you are doing the best you can, it sounds like you are on good terms with your vet, you could probably bring a fecal sample in to them for cheap (maybe they will give you a discount for four?) and have them see if there is a worm issue before going out and buying wormer. If there is a worm issue, they will be able to tell you what wormer to use for the best results. You can tell your dad it will save you money in the long run, because if they DO have a worm load, you might be able to feed less with more effect if it is taken care of.
I don't think hay analysis is very expensive if you want to have your hay tested to be safe. All stuff that can save you money in the long run!
