Thanks for your comment.That would normally be the first thing to do but she was on a regular worming schedule and the last time she was wormed was in March.
When horses get older, they have a harder time gaining and holding weight.Usually it has to do with their teeth.
I am going to get the vet out to check them. She will be de-wormed again as well.
There are fecal smear test for worms but it is more than likely not worms, just her age.
