My mare is rubbing her butt on the fence and feeder, well I guess just about anything she can get to, what does that mean? Today is the first time I noticed it. Is it worms or a sign of foaling? If it is worms is it safe to give her dewormer if she is due in 3 weeks?

Its best to de-worm within 24 hrs after foaling..I use ivemect, but if you feel you need to worm now then ivemect or panacure are my favorites as they are safe for mares and foals..
Many mares will rub their butts or lean on object to counter the internal pressure of the foal. Its very normal.

Gynna,

Why do you worm within 24 hours after they foal? Is it in addition to their normal rotation of worming?

Jennifer,
You want to deworm with an Ivermectin within 24 hours of passing the placenta...it just helps to avoid the "foal heat" scours that the foal gets. I've been doing this for a couple of years now and it really works!
And yes, you can do it in addition to the normal deworming rotation.

The reason I de-worm within 24 hrs of foaling is that large strongids(I thinks thats the right wormy buggar) are released with the pressure of labor( they are incased in the intestins) and are then in the mares bloodstream adn could infect her and the foal. Worming the mare kills any that are now in the blood stream( some think this may be the reason for foal heat scours and thats why worming helps)...I have not had a foal with heat scours yet either! LOL

Strongylus westerii... the larvae are transferred to the foal in the mare's milk unless she is dewormed using an Ivermectin product within the first 24 (preferably 12) hours after foaling.
