A few years ago I bought a mare at auction, cause she went for an excellet price as per her pedigree. Now her problem. I gues somewhere way back when she had some sort of hip trauma. I have accupuncturists working on her now, but in 3 years I have never witnessed her layng down. She is now in foal with the first foal since I bought her and I have it set up already for her to foal at our local clinic in case there is trouble. Any suggestions or prior experience with a problem such as this?

I had/have a mare that fractured her pelvis (15 years ago)..she had 2 foals prior to the fracture and once she healed, she had another 4.

The only foaling problem I ran into after the fracture was that she would 'shoot the foals out a bit high'...i.e. the feet would come out at an upwards angle and try to come out the anus...

Luckily for all 4 subsequent foalings, I was there to gently guide the feet out the correct opening :-).

My mare was able to lay down...if your mare can't lay down and has to foal standing up, there could be some minor issues from that.
