I worm at four months nuisance. She may have worms but if she doesnt have a heavy infestation I would not worry about it. If you do worm her use the ivermectin not the strongid C stuff.
OK ladies this is going to be a meet and greet not a bikini contest and we will be at a horse show. Wear what is comfortable.
My daughter is concerned that I am going to meet so many ladies in a distant town.
After telling her I was going to the meet and greet she turned all lawyer in me and starting asking pointed questions. I told her I was meeting people I met here on the forum. Now she thinks this is some dating sight.
I thought for a moment I was the child and she was the parent.
Then reality set back in and I promptly told her to mind her own business. Without explaining any of the details. Let her think this is some middle age male complex. I bet her mind is racing now. Shalom

Right, nu. A group of us one year all met at the ApHC world show .. from all over the country. We had never met .. we rented like 6 or 7 rooms in the same hall of a hotel and just as we arrived we took the next available bed. I roomed with a girl from CA .. we had a BLAST. All went to Billy Bob's one night .. We frequently had the doors open into the halls and moved from one room to the other like one big happy family house!

Horse people ... just havin' fun!

I wormed Henny at five months with Ivermectin. Don't know if the breeder ever wormed him, but mama was wormed before he was born. I feel like I'm STILL having problems with worms with him. He's STILL shedding(a lot better than he was before but it's taking foreveeeeer) and I power packed him earlier this month with SafeGuard. After worming him twice last month with Zimectrin Gold and Fenbendazole. That dang pony is a worm magnet. Doesn't help he's a yearling so more susceptible, and his paddock is next to a horse who is never wormed. :/ I swear, he is almost done shedding, though. I curry him every day until my arms scream and get quite a bit of hair off of him. He's shiny underneath that old winter coat so he's healthy, he just needs to LET IT GO.

There on the tips of fair fresh flowers feedeth he; How joyous his neigh,
there in the midst of sacred pollen hidden, all hidden he; how joyous his neigh

I know. I wormed him with a double dose of Ivermectin in January then tried to get a fecal done in March(vet never called me back with results but she didn't charge me so I didn't want to press the issue). Then when I realized in May when he stopped shedding, "You idiot, he's probably wormy" so I wormed him twice then got a fecal done the beginning of June which showed her had round worm eggs. My vet told me to power pack with safeguard so I did, which was 2 weeks ago. He's been shedding since but I want him to hurry up so he won't overheat. I'm getting another fecal done this weekend when I take him in for updated radiographs of his feet to see if he's still got any. I can tell hoe much he's got left to shed by how well I can see his mapping lol. We're almost there!

OK, Texasgal my daughter is very nosey. She would make a great PI. She is going to be an awesome Yenta aunt. She is probably reading this very thread from the beginning to the end all 6,500 post. Now she is going to read about some wild party in a hotel room with people roaming from room to room.At the meet and greet anyone see a 5'2" brunette stalking our group that will by Kyra. She is a glamour girl so she should stick out at the horse show.
I wormed my mares about a month before foaling also.
If you are going to worm use the daily one and adjust it for her weight.
Henny might respond better to the daily wormer also. Shalom
