    As I am sure you know, when you want them to "poop" they dont, when you don't they do!

    Ha!  All I have to do is start heading them for the trailer and they all go.

    Seriously though.  I used to do fecals and the vet told me that you cannot always tell from a fecal if the horse has worms unless really infested.  She said that certain worms, like tapeworm, don't show on a fecal. Is this my faulty memory or is there some truth to this.  I liked the idea of testing rather than dosing with wormer but haven't done the fecals in quite some time because of what I was told.

    People may fail many times, but they become failures only when they begin to blame someone else.
