What is your barn's worming policy?

What is your barn's worming policy? Do they worm your horse? If so, do they worm your horse when they arrive or just when the rest of the horses get wormed?

EVeryone's responsible to worm their own horse unless on daily wormer, then BO does it for those on the schedule.

It depends. The last barn I was at had a pre-set schedule where you would be charged thru your board and they did it for you or you could do it yourself but you had to do it at the same time as the others. The barn I am at doesn't really have anything set up which is something I have been trying to set up for some time now. It doesn't make a lot of sense if they are all done at a different time and the worst part is that I know for a fact not all owners do actually deworm their horses. Something that frustrates me because it puts my horse at risk.

Our BO does it with her horses but only if you ask her... If not she forgets...

Edited to add You have to worm your horse within two days of bringing him or her on the property and you MUST maintain a proper worming schedule. If you don't... I'm not sure what happens :]

The place I board at worms every 3 months. The BO lets you know what day she is doing it and what the cost of the wormer is. She does all the horses on the same day. When a new horse(s) come for boarding they need to be done within 2 days of arriving then are kept seperate for 2 weeks. As per the vet we use it will take that long to get rid on any worms they might have. The paddock is also cleaned daily.

I do it myself along with her shots. The last barn I was at was suppose to do it but I really dont think it was done. So I did it myself and just let the BO know.

It's not the will to win, but the will to prepare to win that makes the difference.

One barn I was at never dewormed the horses - only the boarders did or the lesson kids if they felt bad. Another I went to would tack on the extra $$ whenever it was deworming time. They would say they were deworming on this day and if you wanted to be present let the BO know to set up a time otherwise theyčd all be done at some point during the day.

Our barn is not on a schedule like some are, but everyone is responsible for keeping up on worming their horses (every 6-8 weeks)...but a group of us there got on the same schedule just so that we wouldn't forget and to keep track of which meds we're rotating through!
