I have a mare that I got on a trade. She came to me as being in foal at 100 days but lost it shortly there after. I took her to my vet who said she had a tilted uterus. She has had foals before although not many, I think three or four. She's 12yo now and only broodmare sound so I would like to get her in foal. Is there anything I could do to help her tighten up her belly. (She's got that big hanging down belly from no exercise and wondered if maybe doing some 'workouts' would help bring her belly up and therefore bring her uterus up?) It may be a dumb question but I would like to know. My vet says it's not hopeless to get her in foal and to carry as her uterus is not that bad but it is tilted. I guess my main question is, can being out of shape with a HUGE belly on her cause the pull downward on her uterus and therefore exercise to tighten it up help correct it? Thank you for any help or info.
My girlfriends mare had a tilted uterus.. She never got in foal because of it. She was always getting dirty and ended up with fluid in their causing her to abort. So I guess it would be the degree it is tilted.
