She has loose stools, though not what I would call watery. Formed as she goes, but a puddle when it hits the grass. It looks between cow and horse manure.Her rear and tail are a disaster. Glad it's warm, because someone is getting a bath tomorrow!
I really doubt that worming again would help..or be appropriate (twice in a month already?) I can't find biosponge anywhere, and one place suggested I try a probiotic. She is not showing any signs of distress..acts completely normal. They are all eating the same (the mares' hay is different now), but the previous owner fed them all from the same round bales.

here is some bio sponge good luck.I hope she feels better soon. Check with your vet I know that sometimes change of food and new area will stress horses as well. Did your vet check her stool?I use this bio sponge on a foal it worked great.

Our vet hasn't seen them yet. He will think I have gone nuts..but that's ok, haha. We have an aged Angus heifer and 2 mini-donkey geldings in another pasture. All 3 are curious about what's happening in the lower field, it will take time though, before we let them get close.They want the barn back, so am glad the weather is beautiful.
All 3 horses are wonderful..calm, easy to lead..and put up with nearly everything. I hope that includes a completely inexperienced equine midwife. At this point, I'd rather deliver my own baby by myself in the barn..be less nervous!!! Course..I have 7..lol

Sometimes a couple weeks on Metronidazole antibiotic is needed to get the gut working properly... I've seen it work many times in horses with chronic diarrhea.
Meanwhile, be sure to slather Desitin or a diaper rash cream around her anus and below after bathing ... Looks ugly but helps prevent burning and irritation.
