My 9 year old daughter has been leasing a mare that we are considering purchasing, we think might be pregnant. She supposibly foaled in late April and she was bred back. The vet came out last week and said he did not feel the foal. He said because she has foaled several times or more her uterus is dropped. He will be coming to do an sonogram this week.

When a mare is bred back what does that usually mean? Is there a special time period this takes place?

I am a novice about this pregnancy stuff and would prefer to not buy a mare that is pregnant. However,this horse is an absolute wonderful little horse that has been such a blessing for my girls. I just want some idea of what we are looking at if indeed this mare is pregnant. Also what our options would be. Also, the ranch will be keeping the foal. :)

Thanks!

Robin

Robin- It all depends upon the breeding dates. She could have been bred back during her foal heat or later. The breeders should know the dates of the covers.

All mares differ, and there is no exact determination without dates, or an ultrasound. If she foaled in April, there is a foal on her side, correct?

Your girls should be able to ride her well into her pregnancy. With good care and common sense, she may be ridden within 30 days of foaling. There are shots to be given at 5, 7 and 9 months as well as during the last 30 days. She will need worming and extra supplements for the pregnancy.

Because the ranch is keeping the foal, I assume that they are financially responsible for the additional costs of the pregnancy, including medical and additional feed. All of their responsibility would cease at the time of weaning.

I would have a written contract decribing all of the above. It should include a replacement value of the mare in case something went wrong. If the mare is not properly cared for during the pregnancy, it could effect the health of the mare. Have a talk with the veterinarian, he can give you an idea of the impending costs up to and including foaling.

A good, safe horse is indeed a blessing for your children. After all, their well being depends on her. Most pregnant mares are even tempered and very tolerant. Let us know what the verdict is!

Hi Kelly,

No, she does not have a foal at her side, she has been at the stables for only one month. Previously she was from a Indian reservation in Arizona were they breed and train Quarter/Mustangs and they originally bought this mare for their rent string. So I dont have a lot of background info on her other than that.

Thank you so much for all your advice on the other info as well. I will definelty have an agreement signed regarding the pregnancy and birth as well as the foaling. I will keep you posted!

Thanks again,

Robin

If the horse is a good horse don't penalize her for the previous owners ignorance on not knowing wether she is in foal or not! Be sure that they know that they will be responsible for foaling related expenses on her throughout this purchase agreement. She will be back to her normal self after weaning. Don't hold it against her if she gets a little dominate after foaling and even has some mood swings throughout the duration. Good luck
