This worming discussion was split from a thread in another forum.
make sure you deworm , I give two dewormer a month to make sure they have a good doasage
In the winter, as you all know, horses get more, and longer fur. Every horse does. Anyway, before a show one time, me and my two friends and fellow competitors were grooming our horses, Night Heat, Bishop and Love Story. We were grooming fo about 10 minutes, when we looked down, and it looked like it had snowed brown fur!! So we had an idea, fetched a bucket, and as we groomed we filled the bucket.

We groomed for about two hours I think, and when we were done we had filled FOUR buckets with horse fur!! :shock:

Do any of you get like, really fluffy buffy horses? LOL

Okay, this is the second post from you regarding deworming and I have to say you are seriously overdosing your horses. The first post just said you were worming monthly - but TWO dewormers in a month? Not only are you wasting your money, you are shooting yourself in the foot by building a resistance in the parasites. Exactly which equine specialist has advised you to dose so recklessly?

I have done research and its says on certain dewormers you could give up to five doasages and it wont cause any harm, by the way I did do different dewormers . Be carefull on how you judge people who are simply giving advise take it or leave it, I am new to these sites on horse talk. but not new on caring for my horses.

Recent studies have shown that the schedule horses should be on(different dewromer twice a month) may even be too much.

This is what my vet told me too. He told me every 4 months, or every change of seasons, otherwise horses build up resistances.

Back to the original topic - I know some horses that get thick thick coats. Right now, everytime my gelding rolls it looks like theres snow in the pasture because he is shedding so much - and he was blanked all winter.

my own resent study and experiment has worked quite well and has had no problems.:lol:

Duma - do your horse a favor and speak to Ryle, a member here on the boards. You can send her a PM if you want to keep the conversation private. She can provide a lot of very good information regarding deworming, the new information that is coming out, resistance of the parasites, etc.

the pic of my horse she only gained alittle winter fur, it was not at all messy, deworming your horse has alot to do with his grooming by the way you never told me that you were keeping up with deworming. A horse can appear healthy even if he has worms. When i read your treand thats what advice i had I have no intentions to get into a squable over your situation, but i can freely say i've had plenty of experience in keeping a horse. If you dont want to here what i have to say then block me or just dont reply its that simpile, take this advice like isaid or leave it. do not reply back if my advice is not on your level ill understand
None of the pictures I currently have of him are from winter, that would be why it doesn't look that thick. Trust me, it's a nightmare when he starts shedding.

I've already read about certain dewormers if you notice different dewormers all have the same ingredients but different amounts . why dont they just stick with the same amount of percentages? because some are low doasages look for your self. vets want you to have to bring your animals, I already know that you have to rotate your dewormers.I do that, do you understand horse talk as far as i can tell yall must spend too much money going to the vet all the time. I found away around that its called find out for yourselves. by the way I am a horse trainner too, I broke 1 stallion, 2 mares and fixed serveral horses from bucking and throwing fits. take it or leave it

Not all dewormers have the same medication either. There are several classes and you are supposed to rotate.

The ABSOLUTE BEST thing to do is get a fecal egg count on EACH horse and THEN deworm according to what your results are. Is it a little more expensive? Yes. Does it decrease the incidence of resistant parasites and un-needed deworming? Yes.

You quoted yourself and wrote this. Which I do not see has anything to do with what you quoted or the topic at hand. Can you explain please?

I also do not get what you are getting at here? What is the part about it not being messy and such all about?

Actually one of the more recent studies has shown that horses should only be dewormed three times a year, with different dewormers of course.
To the OP - if you are deworming twice a month, you are doing it way too often. Have you heard of the thing called "building resistance"? That's what your horse is going to start doing - it may not be evident for years, or even a decade, but it will become apparent.

Wow, thats the most bizarre thing Ive ever heard. (worming twice a month). Its recommended to do 3-4 times a year for the average equine. Twice a month?! wow. Not only will they build a resistance to parasites but can you imagine what your doing to there stomache linng?? Ever heard of the saying "too much of a good thing isnt a good thing?". I feel sorry for your horses!

I STRONGLY agree with this person.

"In more than 99% of horses harboring considerable parasite burdens, there are no symptoms of parasitic disease."
--Martin K. Nielsen, DVM, PHD

I don't believe that parasite loads keep a horse from shedding out.

50% or more horses are lowe egg shedders, meaning that they shed 0-200 eggs per gram of feces. These horses don't require more than twice a year deworming. So for many horses even deworming 3-4 times a year is overkill.
