My TB mare is in foal with twins. Shs is 24 days. she is a maidan mare. We have a vet appt on tuesday to pinch one or she if there is only one now. At her appt on thursday he said they were both there and were growing. I am looking for advise on what I should do. I don't want her going with twins. How long can they absorb one and what is the chance on pinching one off. The vet says we should pinch one. I want to make the best choose so I have a baby next year.

Review the article about managing twins in the mare (follow that link) - it should answer most of your questions.

y mare had twins the forst time round, she too is TB - the pinched one before the 35 day mark and she had a beautiful chestnut apaloosa colt from that pregnancy - they pinched the bigger one, I found that a bit strange because I thought they would take the less developed of the two -just incase your vets do the same and you also think its strange at the time. Good luck - Let us know how you get on : )

If the foals are located in seperate horns then pinching is advisable. Just make sure to give her banamine post pinching and maybe put her on Regumate, just to make sure. You do not want twins though.

looking for some help with information. I just took my horse to the Vets to get her checked so that I could breed her this year ( last year she lost the foal Reaborbed but went threw everything a pregnant mare would) The aultra sound was good showing she is ready to breed. The vet also did a colcher on her becouse of last time and her assistant called me yesterday and said the results were in and that she has Acinetobacter. We are going in monday morning to get her cleaned out and they will put an antibotic up inside her. I know we will loose this onemonday ( we have been breeding her this past week) My question to you is have you ever heard of this Acinetobacter befor? I have been looking it up on the internet and it shows lot of people getting it threw hospitals but i can't find alot of horses getting it. And how they get it. Alot of what I have read shows it as a Bio chemical agent in wars??Any information you could give he would realy be helpful for me.. Thank you
