I have three mares that i have had problems getting in foal. One a maiden mare, the other two have had three previous foals, each. They are all overweight. I have started the process of changing their diet to try to get some weight off. I was just wondering if this could be the reason that they are not getting in foal? I have heard using thryo L mentioned, is it safe to give even if the tests show not to have a thyroid problem? How long would you use it? I dont want to lose another year without babies. What should i do? Any suggestions appreciated.
We had the same problem our vet suggested a diet but no much of one. Our mare came in heat and was bred the following spring. I think that her being over weight may have been the problem. You can try that and see what happenends
Supporting Lisa here...I have heard that using Thyroid meds when not necessary can cause their own thyroid production to shut down.
