I was wondering if Stormy is full of worms or just has a hay belly. She has been on 5 acres of pasture and she gets development grain and alfalfa. She has a bit of rib showing but nothing serious but she has a belly on her. I looked at her manure and I didn't see in worms visible to the eye but that isn't saying she doesn't have worms. She was wormed in March or April..I will have to ask my mom. Her manure is soft but not overly soft unless she is nervous about something. No diarrhea.
Also does Gidget look thin? I always worry about her weight. I know she needs more muscle. We are working on that but the weather has been bad here..does nothing but rain.
She looks fine. She does have a bit of a belly but most yearlings have a little trouble digesting long stem fiber so they get that look. Her coat is coming in nicely with a shine so that would make me think not worms at all. Her poop is probably a little runny from the pasture grass.
