I stopped by the feed store today and picked up a tube of horse-wormer. Worming a horse is no where near as adventrous as doing the cows, I'm afraid. I stepped over the fence, and after a few moments was able to grab Daisy's halter. She wasn't happy, but after she calmed down, I slid the tube into her mouth and when I got to the back of her tongue, I pushed the plunger. I held her head up for about a minute afterward to make sure she wasn't going to spit it out, then she was done.
As I was walking back to the house, I happened to look down see the following label on the tube:
Warning: Do not use in horses intended for human consumption.
I don't know what's scarier - the fact that humans shouldn't consume the stuff, or that humans would consume the horse to begin with.... I know, people do it, just not people I know....
