I am considering buying a mare to breed in a few years. However, she developed a yeast infection after she succesfully foaled in 2001. She just tested positive a few weeks ago which means it hasn't cleared up. She is 12 now and has had four succesful foals. She has great bloodlines. I am new to breeding and need help determining the severity of her condition. Thanks for your help.

Anonymous, My first action would be to consult a trusted vet to be sure this is her problem and not something more serious. Is she being treated for this conditon? I do not think it would cause infertility once it's been sucessfully treated. It would also need to be determined what is causing this imbalance. It also could have been passed from the stallion. Being 12 years old , I wouldn't let a lot of time lapse before you breed her if you do buy her. Of course I would always get a vet checked "clean bill of health" before I made a purchase, Especially for the purpose of breeding.

Anonymous, A little more info for you on yeast infections. Yeast infections are not very common in horses. It can be caused by an imbalance in the body such as antibiotic treatments. They kill bad bacteria as well as the good. A digestive enzyme aid should be added to her diet. Your local feed store or horse supply mag. should carry these products. This will put friendly bacteria back in her system and help her balance out. Yeast also thrives on sugars. Since foaling has her diet been increased with extra corn, beet pulp, molasses? She may be sensitive to that also. She can sucessfully be treated with anti-fugals prescribed by the vet. Hope this is helpful.
