Young horses are high shedders of parasites. I have a yearling same age as yours. I worm every 2 months with Quest Plus with a pre/ prebiotic paste given first. I did a lot of research on this, top some vet colleges recommend this method until the high shedder is 2 years old, then every 4 months. Before this I did a fecal, only a few roundworms were found, he was dewormed a month prior. The wormer the vet recommended did not work, Strongid, less than a month later, I found a large roundworm, alive, in his manure. Hence the research and my colt filled out nicely and began to get a bloom.
