Our Fjord had runny poo, nasty tail , I used the Giddyap girl product , had the Vet float her, wormed her paste, and the Vet wormed her with liquid wormer and changed for some senior feed to special diet feed no molasses, and her poos are firmed up .

My horses have been dewormed, had their teeth floated, and only eat hay, grass and hay cubes. Though I am going to deworm again now that they're on pasture, as per the vet's instructions. I've also used two different types of dewormers - one ivermectin-based and one moxidectin-based (effective against encysted worms, which is not the case for ivermectin based products).

Manure is consistently better now. With the runny stool becoming far more sporadic. They're also on pasture all day now. Oddly, it has the opposite effect on Harley compared to most horses - when he's on pasture, his stool gets better rather than more runny. Kodak's stool is a bit runny at the moment, but I know it's just the switch to grass. It will subside. I'll keep Harley on pre and probiotics for a while longer as they seem to be having a positive effect.
walkinthewalk and stevenson like this.

Coming back to say that I haven't seen any runny stool in a few days. Well, not from Harley anyway :) Kodak's stool is a bit runny, but that's from the grass. It will firm up. No dirty hocks, no big, flat patties. I may still see it here and there (he had a nasty one when we hauled him to the coach's for a lesson, but that's stress-induced), but at this point, I am inclined to think the pre and probiotics have done their job. I will finish the ones I have on hand, then take him off them for a while to see what happens. I will keep this "recipe" I concocted on file for when it comes back as needed. I have to say, I'm pretty pleased with the fact that I was finally able to get this under control.
