We do follow the vets recommendation.
For example: We did a fecal in October, wormed in November based on the fecal results from October. We then did a fecal in December. All horses were worm free (yay!), so we were told by the vet to do a fecal in March and then we will worm accordingly.
This seems to work. My horse, he lives with 2 others, is considered the "shedder" of the group. His worm count when I got him a year ago, was the highest the vet had ever seen! I have been following a worming protocol set by my vet. This last fecal, he tested worm free. I can't tell you how exciting that is!
