    Disappointing but science is hard for some people to understand. I am now beginning to hope that they will make dewormers prescription only. I mean we live in a country of climate change deniers and...

    Nope. I have seen the evidence myself. Power pak barely lowers the count. I have done the Fecal Egg Reduction Test. So has the Penn State extension service. Benzimidazole resistance is...

    I guess not much point if she is not going to follow...Does she do a FEC after the power pak? If she did, she might find the reason why her horses are high shedders. That product is close to...

    I have never seen this, I hear about but never seen. What kind of worms do you think they are? I'm guessing tapeworms?

    Yes FECs are not 100% accurate. It is the best we have right now. I am amazed that people would rather de-worm and have no idea if the horse needs it or not. Also that they would spend money on a...

    Interesting. I wonder if someone else de-wormed her. Roundworms come out like that when they are dead. How old was she? Roundworms are usually in younger horses. A different protocol applies to...

    2-4 times during a ride doesn't sound like too much. But you might want to have Vet listen to her lungs. Developing heaves? If wetting hay helps her, do it. Make sure they don't do stuff like blow...
  9. Does everyone know to fecal test now, not rotate wormers?

    Just curious how well this information is spreading. Does anyone still just deworm every 2 months?
    I have started offering fecal testing as a service and have made some interesting discoveries. ...

    Thanks for weighing in Katy! I didn't realize you were on here. It is very frustrating but I really think this BO is on the verge of figuring out the truth. It's a shame because she is fairly new...

    I don't use that farrier and she wouldn't do my horse anyway because she only works with clients that drink her kool aid - true story (though not in those words.) Besides my horse has shoes and she...

    Grass is bad for horses!?

    This is what my barn owner told me. She's not just talking about horses with laminitis or EMS but all horses. She uses a farrier that is a Jaime Jackson protege and apparently he says that horses...

    This has no scientific basis. They eat grass and grain which has a lot more calories than hay and they don't get high. Not trying to be snotty, just scientific.

    I'm going to teach an equine nutrition class in the fall and would love to know the scientific answer to this question. I have asked vets and get the answer "sometimes" alfalfa can make them hot. ...

    Me too! I moved my horse to a new barn after 9 years. The indoor collapse was a good excuse, but really I just wasn't happy there anymore. I had so much guilt about moving him from his "home" for...

    She's a good egg! Good trainer and horseperson. I haven't seen her in a couple years but everything I hear is positive. She was one that came out of Pleasant Hollow ages ago.

    I'm taking an equine massage class now. We are using Mike Scott's book which is nice; simple without being dumbed down. I also loved a video from Horses Inside Out. She does that muscle painting...

    A little too pricey for me. That's even more than Bucks County. Too bad they don't have a day pass, I would love to go and ride there sometime. Try to hook up with Susie Beale she has a ton of...

    Kevin Babington has a barn in Gywnedd, further south of Doylestown. Also there is one called Serengeti in Jamison - close to D-town. I forget the name of the trainer. There are lots of mixed...

    I will pass this on to a pony person I know. The second picture makes her conformation look awkward. Agree with getting a better picture.
