I recently purchased a 20-year-old quarter horse mare who will foal in July (she has been preg checked by my vet and is in foal for sure). She has had a foal almost every year since 1985. I was wondering because she is foaling so late this year if I should wait to breed her back next spring or will this hurt her chances for conception if I don't breed her back right away this year?

Often older mares such as this are better off being kept in foal each year. Sometimes it seems that missing a year can result in their being very difficult (or impossible) to get in foal the next year.

If it were me I might feel inclined to use delaying tactics to breed on her foal heat ensuring an ovulation at least ten days after foaling. There's an article on that subject available on this web site by "clicking here".

Good luck!

Thank you. I think that might be the way to go. Tonya
