He's still shedding them, but they look dead. I'm still mystified where he could have picked it up. I know show stalls can harbor them, but he hasn't been anywhere near a stall. I'm wondering if some wildlife could also host the equine version. I need to research that. I have deer and auodads here. They are ruminants, not equids, but maybe??

Vet replied promptly. He said pinworms are present in lots of horses but sometimes don't cause any problems. The moral: don't assume that your horse is parasite-free even with a fecal exam. That has been my policy for many years, but it isn't fool proof.

You would be surprised how easily they are transferred. Hay is a big culprit as it can harbor an egg or two and its usually all it takes to infect your horse.
