I am thinking about buying a filly for future breeding. In dealing with my older mare my vet used the term reproductive conformation when he first assessed her for breeding. I am wondering is anyone knows at what age a vet can tell if a filly has good reproductive conformation? Thanks for any info.

My guess would be that a vet should be able to tell how the reproductive system of a filly is at the age of 2 years. I had a filly checked at 2 years of age to see if she was going to be reproductively sound, and he was able to tell me at that time that she was fine, just still too immature reproductively. You may want to ask your vet what age he would recommend. I think all vets are different on what they feel is the age they can assess them.
