How long do you all wait after the mare is declared in foal to worm or vaccinate. I know one school of thought says 45 days. Opinions?

The hypothesis is that organogenesis is taking place during the first 45 days or so of pregnancy, and interruption of that may result in loss of the pregnancy. In order to protect themselves better, some avoid any toxin exposure (which includes deworming and vaccinations) for the first 90 days of pregnancy. It is certainly easy to do if one has planned ahead, and may be an advantage. Note that pregnancy loss - if it did occur - would not be in all mares, and in fact probably only a small percentage. The practice should not therefore be performed to the detriment of the mare's health in the event of an outbreak or possible disease contact leaving the mare without protection from a suitable vaccination.
