    Like equiniphile mentioned, weigh your feed to make sure you are giving them exactly what they need.
    That sounds like an idea.. How much did you give her of that an how many times a day? Also how long did it take to see results?

    Part of the problem the allstock feed is junk and they look like they need worming. The black doesnt look to great either. Dull hair coats skinny pot belly on the chestnut you need to change your feedin program. Get rid of that all stock feed and get something worth feeding.

    Please get a fecal count done on these horses and get them on a panacur power pack. They look VERY wormy.

    I plan to change their feed an get a better hay an do the worming.. Their previous owners weren't good to them they looked much worse when I brought them home.. I've just been feeding them "leftovers" till I could get advice an look around to get what they actually need.. I plan to get them a better grade of feed tomorrow an get the wormer... I can post progress pictures too if y'all would like. :)

    Thats funny, since you threw my advice to the wall and called out my own horses.

    Did you not say earlier that you didn't have the money for the right feed, that you didn't believe they were skinny, told a few other members that their horses looked like poop and that we were all arrogant rich snobs that lived on Mommy and Daddys credit cards?

    Now you suddenly change the story.

    And a regular wormer is not going to work. These horses need a fecal count and analysis done because they are beyond just a little wormy.

    I honestly couldn't tell you as it varies place to place. My vet charges $75 if I bring the sample to him.

    But it varies vet to vet, county to county, state to state, country to country.

    It will cost what it costs. I can't tell you because I live in Texas. You'll need to ask your vet.

    Regardless of what it costs, it needs done. If you can't afford it, then perhaps you should rethink horse ownership.
