Cushings Test

I've been looking at previous posts about Cushings. My question is how many times do you test for Cushings? We bought an older Kieger Mustang before the summer of 2009. He wasn't well taken care of and hardly ever groomed, also overweight. That summer he didn't shed all the way out. People at the barn told me I should have him tested for Cushings. I did and it was negative. But the vet said he probably still had it. We take better care of him than the old owner and have gotten him down to a good weight. He almost shed out completely this last summer. We recently moved and when the vet came out to give him his shots she said he should be tested for Cushings. I told her we had already tested him and she said "well, he probably has it because of his long coat". We are in a colder area now and he is pretty furry. Do I keep getting him tested? Do I just start treating him? He hasn't had any other symptoms. Could he just be a furry horse or am I fooling myself.(the owner before me said he had him tested also but I don't know if I believe him)
