    I would like to worm the new pair but rather than buying a whole new thingie of ivomec it would be real convenient if I could use the ivermectin paste I worm my horses with (they are about due anyhow, and when I've used this for chickens the chickens get such an infinitesimal dab it doesn't really cut into what the horses get).

    Do any of you do this, and what size blob woudl be appropriate for a not-full-grown Ridley strain bronze?

    Thanks for any info,

    Pat

    I have never done it. If no one knows the dosage, you would have to figure the liquid dosage, and then calculate by weight, but you would need a little gram scale to weigh it.
