Nathan, im not sure if you are aware of this but Quest is not safe to use on miniatures ..i have heard many many horror stories ..do NOT use quest.September - Quest (Ivermectin for young, underweight, debilitated, or Cushings horses)
All horses under 14 months of age get wormed on the first of every month.

You also said you worm monthly... what do you do in the off months?Most mini people do not use Quest on miniature horses due to their low fat levels. Horses with too little fat can release the drug into their system too quickly, resulting in an overdose. This overdose can take place even though the horse is dosed correctly.
Ah, that makes sense I was a little confused what you meant. With the youngsters between ages 3-12 months we wormed monthly with a mild wormer like Panacur or Strongid, then shifted to the bimonthly after that, very much like yours.Nathan, i worm JR horses under 14 months of age on monthly rutine (like most others i have noticed do). The schedule i posted was my Sr horses bi monthly worming schedule.
We do the same......except for a foal's first worming we tend to use Panacur.I keep it simple. I worm when they get their feet trimmed every 8 weeks. I use Ivermectin mostly but once or twice a year I'll use Strongid or Panacur. The foals get wormed monthly starting when they're 4weeks old with Strongid(I also trim their feet monthly along with the horses I'm showing).
