I spoke with the vet again and they recommended I deworm him with Quest again as it was effective last time. We will recheck him again in 3 months and see where he is at. Our goal is to deworm him when he gets in the range of 300-500 ova per gram. According to the vet, research has shown that 20% of horses carry 80% of the parasites. I just happen to have one of those 20%. Haha. I'm sure another part of the problem is that he's on a fairly small piece of property so he's just grazing too close to manure. I know once Emi comes we will really have to stay on top of the parasite issue. They always say the young and old are most susceptible, and I will have both!

Anyway, he got dewormed with Quest again tonight and I will mark on my calendar to recheck mid December.
