The US 'Easy wormer' kind has a hard plastic plunger that is inserted after the wormer or med is given. Only the side you insert into has a tract inside the 'bit' & the plunger pushes it all in. The bridle should be adjusted shorter than you would with a regular bit to instill the wormer/med onto the back of the tongue.my question is how much of this dose not go down
Any horse can get away from anything if he wanted. I use this on a 16.3 Saddlebred with a huge neck & when he raises his head I can't even reach his halter much less his mouth. He does lower his head for haltering & bridling though.Good idea but waste of money.
Most of the wormer get stuck in/on the wormabit thing.
To me the only reason I would think someone would get this thing would be for a horse that is hard to worm but as you can see this horse is still able to toss his head and get away if he wanted, a firm grip on a halter would work just as good.
Also, I would mix the wormer in with feed or get a feed through before I wasted my money on this thing.
Still a waste of $12 in my opinion.Any horse can get away from anything if he wanted. I use this on a 16.3 Saddlebred with a huge neck & when he raises his head I can't even reach his halter much less his mouth. He does lower his head for haltering & bridling though.
The plunger pushes it all out & the bridle is left on for a while after use. There is very little if any wormer left on the bit.
12 bucks is a small price to pay to avoid a fight.
Wow. Can you order one on line? The Aussie one is a little different than the ones here so maybe that's why the price difference. Yours has a nicer color & thicker nylon & uses a pipe cleaner/ brush instead of a plunger but the concept is the same.I wish they where that cheap here, In australia they are anywhere between 35 40,
That's so there is nothing in their mouth to spit out with the wormer. Some say the wormer works better on an empty stomach but when does a horse ever have an empty stomach?I'm always told to worm my horse before she eats or is fed.
Also mixing the wormer in the food in a good idea.
Yeah I'm almost certain I would be able to order online but worming doesn't really bother me, I'm just terribly short and can get my thumb to the end of the syring so I get my boyfriend to do it, haha
