How long between collecting poo and posting
7

Hello knowledgeable people. An elderly horse has been abandoned at our yard and is showing signs of worms. I brought her in for a bath on Saturday and collected a poo sample. Immediately put it in the fridge and forgot about it. Can I still send it? it's going to be quite a bit of hassle getting another as she's not keen on being caught. Surely the eggs aren't going to disappear?

No, I would get a fresh sample. However if you're sending to Westgate they have a phone no on their website and have been helpful in the past when I've had queries. Would be annoying to get a false result so worth checking.

Yes I think you're right, better to field watch for a poo than wonder if it's a false result. Thank you

When we take parcels to the post office they always say "for security reasons what's in it". How will you actually respond?!

Oh fab, I'll be doing this soon, am really looking forward to seeing the local ladies in the branch that have made me unwrap 2 birthday parcels in the past. I'll just look them straight in the eye and say 'fresh horseshit, would you like to check? and unwrap it and pop it on their counter before they can decline. Brilliant!

No need to take it to a post office. West gate provide a little pot and envelope with a pre paid liable. Just pop it in the post box. Job done. Smile
