My mare is showing signs of possible pinworms? Her tailhead has been extremely itchy. It's causing rubs underneath her tail. She's seems to have a tad bit of what looks like a wormy belly.
We moved to a barn a month ago which puts us two hours away from the closest vet and it's a busy barn with horses living close together so I wouldn't be surprised with a worm load.

I'm going to drive to a tractor supply tonight to see if I can find stuff to help her. Any advice?

You're in a boarding barn with many other horses and no vet care local? :eek:
Nothing within a hour.....:cautious:
Man, hope you never have a emergent condition....

You probably already went shopping but if you not have SWAT I would get some and apply it so you not get flies laying eggs in those open lacerations = maggots...
At the least slather antibiotic cream for a barrier to insects but those wounds will weep cell fluid which attracts flies....
Hope your horse feels better with the thorough cleaning soon to commence including her anus and private regions in both areas...

When the company first started there was a large animal vet close by. They closed shop and now we are stuck. We have a good relationship with the one that is further away and will trailer a horse if and when needed. There are many parts of the united states that does not have access to vet care. If you live in proximity to some just be grateful but don't hate too much for those that don't, just realize that there are a decreasing amount of large animal vets in the country.
I did pick up an off brand of SWAT. How often do I need to reapply?
