    Quarantining would be best anyway because of other things such as strangles. I didn't think of that because we don't have an area to quarantine. We only have two pens and horses in both.

    That's when electric tape and step-in posts come in the game
    If a PPE has been done on the new horse, or it has a recent health certificate, strangles or such can be pretty much ruled out. Deworm the newbie, and give it three days, then it should be all out and they can be together.
