Having fecals done is simple---you can either drop of a sample at your vet's office or even mail them in to a lab like Horsemen's Lab.
Our vet said the same thing about the resistance and it seems like most people I know around here have gone away from the previous common rotation schedule.
As far as boarding facilities, our facility also required worming every two months until this new stuff came out from the vet.
When it comes down to it the owner it the one that should be making the decisions for the care of the horse not the BO. Just let the BO know that there is new evidence out there not to worm so much and hopefully they will be willing to make changes to previous contracts.
