    Where in Northern CA?  I'm especially interested in the new fecal test.
    This drought has really trashed my pasture.  I have weeds I've never seen
    before (and old "friends") high as an elephant's eye.  I had to move the
    horses off all together.
    Adding to this, Lisa's excellent post about combining wormers.....  I just
    wormed everyone with Zimectrin, but, if I recall correctly, ivermectrin
    doesn't get tape worms.  The other horses in the new pasture are scheduled
    to be wormed right away, but it will be about two to two and a half weeks
    after mine.
    Bottom line:  what do I do to get in sync?
    Dyane (feeling way sorry for herself)
    Far, far Northern California
