What is the correct dosage of doxycycline for a 980 lb horse

Resolved Question:

What is the correct dosage of doxycycline for a 980 lb horse for treatment for Lyme disease? My vet has told me 44 100mg capsules twice a day, but the pharmacology material that came with the medication says 100mg per 100/lb.
