Here's How To
Deworm Your Horse the Easy
Horses, as most of you know, can
sometimes be difficult to deworm. Here is a neat way to get
the job done with fewer problems, suggested by Rex Blackwell, horseshoer
and Equine Muscle Conditioningä
instructor from Wickenburg, Arizona.
To simplify giving a horse worm
medicine, Rex places a halter on the horse.
Then he runs a loop of the lead
rope under the jaw through the lower loop of the halter,
and into the mouth like a bit.
This acts much like a bridle bit and the horse will mouth the
rope and concentrate on it.
Place the paste wormer tube or syringe into the back
of the mouth and inject the medicine. Be sure to have the
horse untied while doing all this and hold on to the lead rope.
