We groomed for about two hours I think, and when we were done we had filled FOUR buckets with horse fur!!

Do any of you get like, really fluffy buffy horses? LOL

Okay, this is the second post from you regarding deworming and I have to say you are seriously overdosing your horses. The first post just said you were worming monthly - but TWO dewormers in a month? Not only are you wasting your money, you are shooting yourself in the foot by building a resistance in the parasites. Exactly which equine specialist has advised you to dose so recklessly?

I have done research and its says on certain dewormers you could give up to five doasages and it wont cause any harm, by the way I did do different dewormers . Be carefull on how you judge people who are simply giving advise take it or leave it, I am new to these sites on horse talk. But not new on caring for my horses.

Recent studies have shown that the schedule horses should be on(different dewromer twice a month) may even be too much.

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

This is what my vet told me too. He told me every 4 months, or every change of seasons, otherwise horses build up resistances.

Back to the original topic - I know some horses that get thick thick coats. Right now, everytime my gelding rolls it looks like theres snow in the pasture because he is shedding so much - and he was blanked all winter.

Duma - do your horse a favor and speak to Ryle, a member here on the boards. You can send her a PM if you want to keep the conversation private. She can provide a lot of very good information regarding deworming, the new information that is coming out, resistance of the parasites, etc.

the pic of my horse she only gained alittle winter fur, it was not at all messy, deworming your horse has alot to do with his grooming by the way you never told me that you were keeping up with deworming. A horse can appear healthy even if he has worms. When I read your treand that's what advice I had I have no intentions to get into a squable over your situation, but I can freely say i've had plenty of experience in keeping a horse. If you don't want to here what I have to say then block me or just don't reply its that simpile, take this advice like isaid or leave it. Do not reply back if my advice is not on your level ill understand
