We had to move a yearling stud colt into the broodmare pasture, because he was going through fencing. His new owners are not able to pick him up until the end of May. So I am stuck with him until then. In the meantime, my husband says he saw this colt breed our yearling filly this morning. This HAS to be her first heat cycle, as I have never noticed her in heat before. They both turned a year April 18/19th. What should I do now? Someone suggested giving the filly some sort of shot, to make her abort? Thanks!

She can be given a shot of lutalyse 7-10 days after breeding, but your really need to get him away from any mares until he is picked up. Cathy

Yes, I agree. We were able to seperate the filly out. So he is only with the bred mares now. I speak with my vet about giving the filly a shot. Thanks!
