Chilcotin Holidays

Mountain guides enjoying a winter deworming session

Our horseback mountain guides recently dewormed all our horses. It only takes 5 ml of dewormer in the mouth to make our horses healthy for 3 months, so we have to do this about 4 times a year.





Cash is a very good patient as the mountain guides treat him
We administrate the dewormer paste with a syringe that we gently insert at the very top on one side of the mouth. Some horses are quite reluctant to accept the syringe, rearing, kicking or just running away, so we have to trick them by mixing the paste with some oats. Some others really like it and beg for more...

Our mountain guides mentored some of our staff members on the process, very special first time experience!
