MY 38" MINIATURE MARE'S 2ND FOAL HAD COMPLICATIONS. SOMEHOW THE FOAL'S HEAD GOT TUCKED UNDER AND COULD NOT REPROSITION, BY THE TIME THE VET CAME OUT, THEY COULDN'T SAVE THE FOAL, AND IT HAD TO BE PULLED OUT OF THE MARE. THE PREVIOUS OWNERS NEVER HAD HER CHECKED TO SEE IF THERE WAS INTERNALLY DAMAGE BY DOING THIS. I WOULD LIKE TO BREED HER BUT MY CONCERN IS IF SHE IS EVEN ABLE AFTER THIS INCIDENT?

I had a draft mare who had her first foal pulled out after a bad presentation. The foal was lost and the mare had massive internal damage. One half of her cirvix was lost and her uterous was doubled over with scar tissue.
Before you even think of breeding this mare, I would suggest an ultrasound to make sure everything is ok inside.
