    Mary and the whole host of other posters who have stated that a negative
    fecal is not necessarily an indication that the horse is clean are correct.
    That's why one designs deworming programs based upon how parasites act in a
    given climate and on the type of management system.  The best knowledge for
    designing a program is having some idea what the reinfection rate is apt to
    be under given conditions at a given time of year.
