I agree, What a great resource for horse owners! I have read it from cover to cover and found the information has helped me fill in the blanks with my own experiences surrounding worming and with one of my horses in particular.
Please delete the following if it isn't appropriate. However, I do have 3 questions which I would still like to have explained and would love too know how I can contact the author to find an answer.
1. Chapter 23. Bottom Line - addressing encysted cyathostomes BEFORE embarking on the relevant chart for your location.
Question: Re. "Usually, for one of these wormings, I substitute with fenbendazole (Panacur)" - Would that substitution of Panacur be a 1 day dosage OR the 5 day dosage?
2. Chapter 23. - Chart 4: Strongyle contaminative potential of individual horse - HIGH.
Question: There are 5 periods to consider (Charts 4 & 1) for HIGH contamination. a.)March/April, b.)May/June, c.)June/July, d.)July/August,e.)Sept/Oct.......Have I read this correctly?
3. Chapter 18. - Fecal Egg Counts
Question: Re. "You need to find out if your individual horse.....is genetically predisposed to small strongyles ..." - How is it determined whether or not your horse is genetically predisposed? What action do I need to take to find out this information?

What a great find this little book was. Dr. Nyland has put together a terrific resource for horse owners everywhere. It's easy to read and makes the complicated topic of deworming horses simple. It's also evidence based and well referenced and full of the practical advice she has gained looking after rescue horses. This meets all my criteria for good horse care information. As an added bonus the proceeds Ann look after the horses she rescues. With the growing resistance to deworming medications this is a must. Amanda Edwards, Equine Care Clinic, Victoria, Australia
