I took a rescue mare. She is a lovely, big mare. The mare was rescued from a starvation situation by a friend. She bred her the following spring, after getting some weight on her. As the mare was exposed to two stallions in the pasture & had not been bred, the owners believed her to be barren, although I believe that she was in such a skeletal starved condition, that she just didn't catch or keep a foal. My friend got her into condition, AI'd her & she caught. At around 3 months or so, she aborted. She brought the mare to me, because the next trip was to a loose horse auction. I breed racing Appaloosas & this mare is a great grand-daughter of Citation. She is a sweet, good natured mare; very tall & big boned. She is in with my senior stallion, & as yet, has shown no sign of heat. One of the other mares is in foal, due in May, the other is a 5 year old maiden mare. Does anyone have any ideas on why she aborted? Is she truly barren. (I thought that she may breed & catch if she is pasture bred & in good condition.)

Moe, sometimes you have to make sure the mare will stand for the stallion. I have a 10yr old gelding that took me two tries, because his mother was a maiden and didn't stand for the stallion, pasture bred the first time. Stallion owner thought she had been bred before. The other thing is maybe she doesn't have the progesterone and estrigen "spelling" levels. From what I have learned, the older they are, being a maiden mare, the harder it can be to get them bred.
Hope this helped.

There are a wide number of reasons why your mare may have aborted - and many are "fixable".

Contact a reliable equine reproduction veterinarian and have them do a "breeding soundness examination" on her. That will be an excellent place to start.

Good luck!
