Yes, I think what the answer is, in a perfect world, where money and time are no issue, then fecal tests on a regular basis would be great. I think most people are telling me what they themselves have been doing and are successful so far with.
I appreciate this forum because there are so many things I am rusty on (grew up riding horses, but my parents took care of all the vetting and feed issues) and I want to be a good horse owner. That said, these (my minis) are not expensive show horses, horses being bred, or even horses with a "job." They are my pets that I am trying to give good care to, but also be reasonable and realistic with all the bells and whistles.
NewImage-That's what I heard...that is you accidentally give too much Quest, it can really be bad! It just kind of freaks me out, because even if given the proper dose, I worry it makes them feel bad and they have no way of telling us. I worry about that with a lot of vaccines and medicines.
Anyway, I am going to look into the rotation sets you guys mentioned, too. Thanks so much!
