New horse I suspect worms

I picked up a new horse yesterday, (rescue) so she has a very large tummy but they say she is 5 months pregnant.

Today after she pooped her anal contracted like most do but hers was very large
And looked like worms attached to her anal. I reminded me of ground beef?

So now what? HELP

As was stated in your other thread - you need to have the vet out for a full work up that includes a FEC (Fecal Egg Count) to identify her parasite load and then proceed with addressing that per the vet's advice.

I understand that, what I am looking for is what and if they are worms and do I need to be concerned about my other horses. I cannot call vet until Monday.

If your other horses are on a proper deworming schedule you shouldn't have an issue but I would pick all manure out daily if you cannot separate them.

Each horse should have a FEC done routinely, may as well do every horse now.

Nobody can really tell you only the vet can really tell you for sure what they are and how to treat them. Set up an appointment as soon as possible the vet can also tell you what to do about the other horse if they might have them as well.
