I have been doing a fecal count on my filly, she is a low shedder, so no wormer. She has been itching her tail any chance she gets, I looked for any bugs in her tail, but haven't seen any. Could it be a different kind of worm or something else?

It is possible that it's pinworms but it's also very possible that there is alot of dirt/debris built up between her udders. So check there and then talk to your vet about maybe doing a tape test for pinworms.
