I have a mare that had to have an ovary removed due to a Granulosa Cell. It took two years, but we did manage to get her in foal. My question is do they normally appear in the remaining ovary at a later date? What are the odds? Also, we are planning on breeding AI this year after the foal is born. Will it be more difficult since she does only have one? I really want to get all the foals I can out of her. Her last one has won numerous grand Championships. I want to know what I'm up against? The two she has had were out of our stud. I'm a little nervous of the shipping cost being $300 for each shipment.Any advice would be great!
Hi, I have a mare who had an ovary removed due to a granuloma cell tumor (not sure if this is the same type). The vet who performed the surgery told me the odds of her ever having another tumor were slim. He had never seen a mare in his 30+ years as a vet come back with another tumor. I am happy to see that your mare foaled after the surgery, I am still trying to get my mare to foal 2 years after surgery. Third times a charm!
Good luck with her.
