Question
horse droppings
horse droppings  
hello Lyn, i have attached an image of a horse's droppings. what is this image explaining me? does this horse has more worms in its stomach?

Answer
Rohit,

Not in the stomach but in the intestinal tract.  They look like ascarids but it's a little hard to tell from the picture.  Horse needs to be wormed badly.  Ivermectin would be my choice if only to be wormed once, otherwise Panacur Blast Pack is a good choice.  Should worm every 60 days due to reinfestation problems.
