Traci asked if it was okay to trailer a mare and foal or a mare just bred.
What I'D like to know is how safe is it to trailer a mare when she's approx. 8 months in foal. It would only be a short trip (45 minutes or less), and my mare is wonderful to trailer, in fact, I think she might even enjoy it.
Now, this is an innocent question, so please don't flame me. The last thing I want to do is jeopardize my mare's health or that of her unborn foal. BUT, the place she's boarded at right now, while being a lovely quaint little barn, isn't really equipped to deal with a broodmare about to give birth. They don't have straw, the box stalls are an okay size, but not big enough for a foaling (IMO)..
I could move her to a big A barn close by that could use a heart monitor on her, put her in a nice, big straw-filled clean stall and take excellent care of her.

What are your thoughts?

There should be no problem.

well, i really think it depends on the mare. i purchased a mare a couple of years ago, she was due two weeks prior to trailering, and the previous owner wasnt in a position to keep her after foaling. i purchased her in idaho and trailered her in a two horse trailer to central ca. needless to say it was a very long haul. she was 4 years healthy and in good condition. we stopped once for a half hour stretching of legs and that was it. she was a real trooper and did great and i had a lovely filly to show for it. this certainly isnt something i would do on a regular basis, however if the mare trailers well, is healthy and you are confident in her, than do what needs being done. there are some things that you have to rely on your gut for when it comes to horses.
