Winter Worm egg counts : because over the winter months (end of October to end of March) the vast majority of the cyathastomins (small roundworms) become encysted in the gut wall, the results from worm egg counts at this time of year are less reliable. A low or negative reading can give a false impression and does not necessarily reflect the numbers of encysted worms in the horse. See our worming program page for suggestions at this time of year. Start worm egg counting again in April.
