I would wait at least 4 weeks to worm her again. You don't want to give her ulcers.

As far as what to worm her with, I think I'd ask the vet. Your vet would know what is best for your area. I am in southern Middle Tennessee and we barely had a winter. I wormed my four with Equimax.

The pic below is my Generator-bred fella, I mentioned above. He's full of sass and attitude, so I was using him to demonstrate how to make a halter in less than 30 seconds with a binder twine.

This was in 2011 when Rusty was 17. He was at a pretty good weight yet you can still see his hip bones. It's safe to say, at 17, those high hips aren't going to disappear- lol He topped out at 16.1H; he's been with me since he was 2-1/2.

He is also a very narrow chested horse by nature but he is a powerhouse of a horse. When I hear thunder coming down off the ridge, 1,500 feet away, I know it's him. My Equine chiro's husband trains QH's and they were both impressed with his natural muscling.

I am thinking your Filly might have Generator breeding or Pusher or both, just by her build. I've been known to be wrong before, however - lol

I just wanted you to see my Generator "hippy guy" with the narrow chest, so you won't be disheartened. I've had this horse on trails so narrow and steep-sided, there was no way to turn around. He instinctively knew what to do and it's a good thing because I had my non-horse husband on him before we were married - lol lol lol That was pretty much his last ride lollollol

Has she had her teeth done? Correctly floated teeth will make a difference in bloom & weight.

Yes ^^^^^

That reminds me, she may be at a point where she's losing her caps, if she's only three.

I had to have the vet out to pop them on my long three year old TWH. They never got infected but they were bothering him to where he did not want a bit in his mouth
