A woman where I had kept my mare intill afew months ago called me last night. She was upset sayinig that a stud colt had broke down the fence and spent the day with her mare and it was apartnt that the mare had been bred. the barn owner told her not to worry about it that she would give her a shot and it would take care of things. this was over a month ago that this happened she said her mare has not been given the shot yet. When she asked the barn owner about this she said that her mare isnt bred and cant carry a foal to term because she is sisstic. (?sp) the woman asked why she thinks this the barn owner told her because her horse will squele at other horses when sniffing noses. I told her to have the vet out and give the barn owner the bill she doenst want to and have it make waves. This woman doesnt know much about horses other than how to ride her horse. Now she is worried about if the mare is bred or if the barn owner is right and that she cant carry. She told me that she doesnt have $$ to spend on this breeding re:vet bills. What should I tell her? Was thinking about telling her she could keep her horse here but not sure if I should or not. dont realy want ot get in the midle of it. We are just starting a breeding farm. What are you thoughts...

You are correct in your summation. The vet should be called, and should pregnancy check the mare. The concept of the mare being cystic based on that behaviour is rubbish - the more so as the equine does not develop a cystic follicle like cows do.

If the barn owner is showing reluctance to pay for a vet call, the mare owner might like to make it clear that the barn owner will be held liable to the fullest extent in the event that the mare is pregnant and anything happens to the mare as a result of the pregnancy.

Note that if it is now over a month since this happened, it is too late to reliably terminate the pregnancy with an injection of prostaglandin, which must be done before about 30 days for reiable success. Options can be discussed with the veterinarian, but it may be necessary to maintain the pregnnacy - in which case there will be certain preventative health care required (Rhinopneumonitis vaccination at 5,7 and 9 months as a minimum for example) and different management for the mare needed - all of which should be discussed with the barn owner, as it would seem that there is a degree of responsibility to be laid there, they having failed to involve a vet. sooner.

As Jos says, who ever owns the Stud colt is liable if the stud colt got out, so she has legal standing to demand her vet bills be paid for. But if she really doesn't want to rock the boat, tease that mare every other day for the next month or so and see if you catch her in heat. If you do, she's probably not in foal. If you think she would be a good boarder, I wouldn't worry about being in the middle of it. Just document the mare's situation before she comes on your property. If she's not boarding there anymore she shouldn't worry about rocking the boat, and should just give the bill to the stud colts owner, along with intent to file suit if the bill is not paid. That is the proper thing to do in a situation like that. If the stud colt had run out into the road and wrecked someone’s truck, they would have to pay for the repairs to the truck, this is no different.

You are right Megan. I have worked at many different horse farms and am just starting mine. This barn owner is very hard to deal with. The stud colt doesnt belong to the barn owner it is another boarder. He is a yearling this year and hardly has any manners. (doesnt know his space) I will call the woman tonight and talk with her about the situation some more and offer her a stall here. The woman feels like she is stuck there due to it being the cheapest place to board in the area every place else charges double or triple what this place is.
