Treat people as if they were what they ought to be and you help them become what they are capable of being

Don't worry about how much you post questions, that's what these boards are all about.

As far as worming goes, I worm every three months, some worm every four, but I won't go longer than that. You rotate wormers to keep the parisites from building up a resistance to the wormer. I'm sure you know this, but you rotate the type (main ingredient) rather than the brand name of the wormer. ie; Ivermection, strongid, ect. Always read the label and dose for weight, for example some wormers are harmful to pregnant mares and foals.

I'm not afraid of hard work, I can lay down next to it and fall asleep without a problem.

I'd also use liquid ivomec, sometimes you can get it from the vet pretty cheap or Jeffers. Generic too.

Good judgment comes from bad experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.
