Hi, I have an 18 year old quarter horse mare that requires a caslick after breeding. She is now bred and in her 10nth month. (she is due 4 weeks from today) My vet recommended to have her caslick opened, and that was done today. My question, is this too early? After reading some posts here it seems that late term abortions are somewhat common, is it possible that she may get an infection and loose the foal because she was opened too soon? This is my first experience with caslick, I am going by my vets advice, just need to know from someone with experience, to calm my motherly nerves. thanks..

Your mare should be fine. Your biggest concern was within the first 90 days of pregnancy. You may want to check a bit closer to foaling to make sure that it did not heal together again.

Hi Everyone,
I have a 100% foundation registered Appaloosa mare that was given to me almost a year ago. Upon her arrival, she was a walking skeleton, but now she has gained several hundred pounds and is looking good. She is slender looking, but not real thin, and I want to bred her to my stallion in May. The problem is, her back end doesn't completely close tight to form a seal, she doesn't have a shelf but she is open by 1/4 inch. I am wondering if she will need a caslick after breeding? Advise appreciated. Thanks. ijr

Ivy, Caslicks is a very fast safe procedure. If I even have a question of my mares vaginal conformation, I will caslick them! Better safe than sorry. If she is open at all then she probably able to get bacteria in her. Good Luck!

I am in the process of purchasing two beautiful Stonewall mares. One comes with a Caslik. My questions are;

How does one care for it?

How often can it be done? She is 12, and I want to breed her at least 3 more times.

Once a Caslik, always a Caslik? Are there other things that can be done to make a Caslik unnecessary? She is reported to be a bit butt-shy because of the work she's had on her vulva, so I suspect she's had more than one,... Surgery to shore up a tipped uterus? Wear a bun bag for 10 months? =-) Wash and wipe after every poo? Have options been researched, or am I just really nieve? =-)

I do have lots of horse experience, and broodmare experience, it's just really rusty, as I haven't used it in many many years,...

Thanks, Cheri'
