I am curious to see if anyone has suggestions or advice on this one. I got a mare back that I had sold a few years ago. She hasn't had a foal in a couple of years, been a broodmare for many years. She is 20, always easy to breed. Sold to someone who got none of his mares in foal, but did succeed in getting them all infected.

So, we got her back, put ALOT of weight on and did a biopsy, culture, cytology just to make sure I wasn't going to waste alot of $$$ breeding her. But the biopsy is a IIA and she has pathogens present. Vet didn't say which, but treatable with penicillan if that sheds light on which it might be. I thought I might try some quite good frozen on her, but after the biopsy, I'm not sure if this is a good idea. I got her in foal 3 years ago with one dose of frozen and at about day 38, there was nothing there. So, I'm assuming she might need to be on Regumate to maintain a pregnancy.

Anyway, I'd like to hear if anyone has had positive results in such a situation or if I should just try to start cleaning her out and possibly breed with fresh next year. Or turn her into a pasture ornament! I was hoping I could get one last foal out of this mare since she has produced some top performance horses, but I want to be realistic!!! Any input is appreciated.
