I have a 3yr old mare that has had a broken pelvis.I was wondering if she would be able to breed, carry and deliver a foal. She also has a problem with holding her wieght up. She can lose wieght over night.

That seems a little too risky to me. I would have to have a complete vet check and okay before I would attempt to breed her. The added stress and weight of pregnancy seems sure to put strain on her pelvis region. And sometimes it is hard to keep the proper weight and nutrients in a completly healthy easy keeper during pregnancy (especially last 2 months!)

Your mare is not done growing yet. If your question is if she will ever be able to carry to term, then a complete vet exam is in order. If your intend to breed her now, you would be taxing her system that is trying to heal and grow. It would certainly not be a good idea to breed her now, but a competent veterinarian would be able to inform you on future breedability.
