Parasites and equines is an ongoing issue – we will never be rid of them fully. As horse owners and horse carers, it is important to find out what the latest research indicates with regards to managing parasites and our horses.
You may find that management recommendations save you money by helping you to target parasites at the right time of year. It will also benefit your horse’s health by reducing worm burdens. If you manage other people’s horses as well as your own, they will thank you for keeping your knowledge current and putting it into practice.
