I forgot to ask my vet about this, so, I thought I'd ask all of you.

At what age do you first worm the foal? I know there are some products that are not safe for foals, too.

I did worm the mare about a month before her due date. Should she be wormed again soon?

Of course, eventually, I want both mare and foal on schedule with the rest of the barn.

thanks for any advice and tips! (btw, the Filly was born on April 5th.)

You should usually worm the newborn once a month until 8months. I start mine exactly one month from birth with Strongid, then panacur, then ivermectin and rotate those three until 8 months when they are put on the barn schedule. Never use Quest on a newborn. Most people won't use it all, but I have had no problems in using it in horses over 1 year and in healthy horses. You can easily overdose on it. I use a weigh tape to give me an idea where my horses are for worming. A lot of people don't believe in that either. Also, I give my mare an ivermectin straight after birth and do her for tapeworms inbetween foaling and breeding. I don't worm my mare for the 1st 90 days or the last 2 months. Other than that she is on a normal schedule. I'm sure some will have varying comments, but as long as you stick to the 3 wormers mentioned for foals, they are safe for pregnant mares too.
Good Luck
Terri
