    If it is worms and they are sharing a pasture you should worm all the horses at the same time. Keep them in for 24hours and poo pick your paddocks. Let us know how she is.

    Ask your vet (phone call to the office for no charge) what they are recommending for worming now. The groups I use bith in NY and VA have me do fecals every 3 months, only worming if the tell me to and with what.....and the ONLY routine worming os spring and especially fall-with what the recommend for the worms that do not show on the fecals. Rotational worming is no longer recommended protocol, at least around here, and neither is just giving the horse wormer because you "Think" it has worms. THe fecal is about $15, and well worth it not to get resistant strains.
