Easter time = treat time at WormGuide HQ
Like Hansel and Gretel’s breadcrumbs, little flecks of colourful foil wrapping dot a path from one desk to the next and appear in random places … beside the coffee machine, in my desk plant, Larissa’s top drawer, bedside the mail crates. (Did someone say secret stash?!)
As much we WormGuiders love an easter choccy (or four) with our morning and afternoon cuppas, we are really mindful that the chocolate bunnies and hollow eggs that make their way into our kitchen, stay in the kitchen and not the paddock.
Happy healthy horses have happy healthy diets so when it comes to Easter treats, human treats and horse treats must be kept separate. Even the smallest amount of theobromine, one of the many compounds naturally found in chocolate, can cause big trouble for our equine beauties.
But that doesn’t mean our horses have to miss out on all the treats this Easter! (Keep reading to get King`s Favourite Easter Treat Recipe!) We’ll unpack the best treat that you can give your horses this Easter (Spoiler alert – you can eat it!) and share a WormGuide horse health mantra that will change your horse’s life AND guarantee you a guilt-free Easter.
The best way to treat your horses this Easter
In Australia, Easter time falls smack-bang in the middle of Autumn, which, as we horse folks know, is the BEST time to find out what’s happening inside all our horses (in terms of intestinal worm eggs) and give all our adult horses over 3 years the basic foundation worming treat/ment. (See what we did there! lol)
While you`re at it, if you have youngsters, you can incorporate the autumn treatment in your young horse worming protocol (1-3 years).
Treating yo horses right this Easter is easy (and fun) with WormGuide. Let’s check out four easy steps to pulling off the perfect equine egg hunt this Easter.
How to Hunt for eggs this Easter (the WormGuide way)
- Fill your pockets with a handful of your favourite chocolate easter eggs (dairy-free, carob, sugar-free, sugar-loaded … whatever floats your boat)
- Repeat the WormGuide Easter mantra out loud: Count the worm eggs in your horse`s poo sample not the choccy eggs in your hand
- Visit www.wormguide.com.au and eat chocolate eggs while browsing (hide wrappers)
- Purchase the Autumn Advantage Set to keep intestinal horse worms at bay and treat yo horses right this worming season

Don`t let your horses miss out this Easter!
Now is the time to count the worm eggs for information about the type and numbers of worm eggs, the level of your adult horse`s egg shedding level, the efficacy of the wormer that you`re using, and apply a basic foundation treatment designed to keep intestinal worms at bay. And the best way to do that is with Australia’s ultimate vet-approved Worm Egg Count Test and Treat Bundle (and the latest egg counting technology that goes along with it, designed to bring your horse’s Easter Egg Hunt to life!).
Use one of your Autumn Set Kits to send us a sample of your horse’s manure and we’ll do the egg hunting for you with our high-performing faecal sample investigations (a.k.a. fluorescence imaging faecal worm egg counts) before you administer the seasonal horse worming treatment included in your Bundle.
Then, wait 10 – 14 days (make Kings favourite Crunchy Easter Treat while you wait) then collect and send us another sample of your horse’s manure to get proof that the wormer did (or didn’t) work using the Truth Teller Test.
In the age of horse wormer resistance this step cannot be missed and should be included in your worm control management. In this case, the after-treatment test gives you peace of mind that the egg laying worms inside your horses were removed (killed) with the recommended foundation worming treatment supplied.
No matter if you have a thing for Easter Eggs, Easter Bunnies, or Easter Chickens, you will be spellbound by the colourful results images that light up the eggs found in your horses’ faecal samples and bring them to life on your phone, computer, or tablet screen. We’ll send them straight to your inbox along with a digital results guide. (Tip: keep a secret stash of human easter eggs near computer to eat while oohing and aahhing at your WormGuide test results.)
When it comes to happy healthy horses, WormGuide is the home of Australia`s leading Equine Easter ‘Egg’ Hunt.
Be sure to get your hands on the Autumn Set every Easter to count the worm eggs in your horses (not the choccy eggs in your hands) and apply the recommended basic foundation treatment to keep intestinal horse worms at bay. Told you it was easy!
