I have a 2 year old filly that cracked her pelvic in 2 places last fall. The vet is coming this week to see if she will ever be able to foal. I know she will have to be bred AI but what is he looking for as far as her being able to foal? Is it possible to tell that ?

I would suspect he is going to review her pelvic diameter, and see if there is sufficient clearance for a foal to pass through. Some mares are narrow, and although this may not result in a problem, I suspect he would have concerns that if there was previous pelvic damage (the crack), then additional pressure during foaling may re-injure it.

It is also possible that he is wanting to do a complete pre-breeding evaluation, which would not be limited to an examination of her pelvis, but would include a uterine swab, with a culture and cytology check; an examination of external genitalia to evaluate any angular problems; an internal examination, quite possibly by ultrasound, or if not then by rectal palpation, which would evaluate the amount and stage of follicular activity on the ovaries; and an evaulation of the uterus for the presence of fluid or cysts. This is a typical "breeding soundness examination", and is money well spent, as it should show any problems prior to you sending the mare to the stallion, or breeding AI, which could be a waste of time and money if there are untreated problems (notably a bacterial infection of the uterus) present.

Good luck!
