I just purchased a very well-bred TB mare that has been barren for 2 years. She has two successful racing foals from 1999 and 2000, but did not get in foal after that. Her culture came back with Klebsiella and 2 types of Strep, and I just found out today that her biopsy is a grade 2B, with potential to be upgraded if inflammation clears. I already adore this mare and want very much to get her in foal. Any ideas on her chances for a successful gestation? Also, ideas for treatments that are likely to improve her status?
Thanks so much for your help!

I am looking at purchaseing a morgan mare for breeding and riding. Her prepurchase exam showed two types of strep, moderate fibrosis and her biopsy came back as a grade 2B. This is a 7 year old maiden mare. Would you consider the risk to high or can this be cleared up? If so, would it be an expensive process?
Any words of wisdom would be appreciated.

First of all check to make sure she really is a maiden mare. This means she has never been bread before and that her hymin should be intact. Usually maiden mares are pretty clean and their uterus wouldn't generally have such a poor biopsy. The first thing you need to do is clear up the infection. You'll need your vet's help for that, because often it involves infusion of antibiotics and sometimes uterine lavage. After the infection clears her biopsy may improve and she would have a better chance of carrying a foal. Right now it doesn't look good. With a grade 2B she has a 10-50% chance of becoming pregnant. It may be an expensive process depending on the antibiotics needed, but she'll be healthier.

Thanks Janeal, She was a maiden mare. That is basicly what my vet said, but couldn't guarantee a better biopsy. I decided not to buy her.

I am looking at an older mare also (just turn 15). She has had two healthy foals, the last one in 2002. She is being bred again this year. The vet said she is healthy in all ways (and well trained). She is a nice mare with good bloodlines. My biggest concern is her age. I would hopefully like to get 3 to 4 foals. Am I being unrealistic in this expectation?

As long as they stay healthy, many mares produce foals well into their twenties. It may take some special management if they start retaining fluid in their uterus. But usually that's manageable with Oxytocin shots, post breeding.
