Hi there. Just had my baby out of my 20 year old maiden. Big, beautiful chestnust filly. My sister is considered rebreeding the mare this year, but she did suffer a good sized labial tear. My vet has not repaired it yet as she said the bruising would probably make the skin more likely to break down so she is going to be rechecked in a week. In the meantime she is being washed twice daily with a mild antiseptic to decrease the likelihood of infection. The tear does not go into the birth canal at all. We think it has something to do with the face that the caslick's was left slightly shut by the vet who is no longer my vet. We tried to open it earlier in the day, but apparently missed some of the inner skin. You could see it pulling when the foal was coming out.
My question is how will this affect her future fertility. I will most likely retire her from breeding after this next baby as she is old enough and done enough. My family is very attached to her, and she has produced such a lovely foal, we would like one more. She is an excellent mother. I do intend to put this to my vet when she comes for the recheck next week, but I am just wondering what others have experienced with labial tears, and if rebreeding is even an option.

Congratulations on your new baby!!

If the tear is only superficial, it shouldn't effect her fertility, but live cover could be impossible if healing isn't complete in time.
It will be a call for your vet, I think, since it's hard to know without seeing the tear.
I have seen many tears ( some of them horrendous) and our vet always recommends warm salty water for washing, rather than an antiseptic, especially if there is a chance some liquid will enter the vagina. This has always been satisfactory in my experience.
