I have an 11 year old miniature mare who has had a foal in august 99'. The foal had to be pulled and was taken to the vet. I was told she needed to have some tear's in her cervix repaired. This was never done. Now she is cycling in/out of heat. Is it safe to say she is sound to breed and that mother nature took care of the cervix? Should she be bred back?
Heather cervical tears can be difficult to repair in a regular sized horse and more so in a mini. They will heal on their own in time, however they may not heal properly and there will be scaring that may or may not interfere with the normal function of the cervix. All of this will have nothing whatever to do with her ability to cycle normally. I would suggest that you have a vet do a thorough reproductive exam before breeding this mare.
