Well, amongst all of this fighting and such I just figured I'd let you all know that I got the fecal sample done. He did have worms, but not as much as I figured. He was only given 1100 lbs of the recommended dose of Equimax, and he needs to be dewormed approximately 4 times a year (at the beginning of every season). I did ask him about what his previous owner had been doing, and he said that it isn't as dangerous as it seems, depending on the severity of the wormer. Equimax should never be double dosed with, especially twice in 2 weeks. As for my horse, which is an ex standardbred racehorse, he said that it isn't all too uncommon. My horse, for example, will hold a good amount of the wormer in his cheek and spit it out when you're not looking, thus a bit of a second wormer may be needed to get the job done.
The love for a horse is just as complicated as the love for another human being. If you never love a horse, you will never understand.
