Hi all, one of our mares aborted late term just yesterday & she also did this in season 05. In season 06 she foaled a healthy colt full term, no complications.

The first was obv. early, prob a month off term, some hair, not on body though, but foetus & membranes stained yellowish, otherwise "normal"???

Yesterdays was earlier, about 8 months, the foetus looked normal, though the membranes surrounding the foal looked to me to have vessels (meaning blood vessels) that were thickened and rather torturous (varicose?, no discolouration this time. The umbilical vessels looked to have some "tagging", not sure if this is normal or not.

Wondering if these two late term abortions are related? I didn't have facility to take any samples or send off for path. Though took pix if anyone interested. The mare seems to have reasonable conformation from a repro perspective. Not one I would necessarily say should absolutely have a Caslick (which we haven't done for all three pregnancies.) Haven't used any hormones or antibiotics in any of the pregnancies.

Any thoughts appreciated
Jo

Without a necropsy and in the absence of obvious causes it is pretty much impossible to predict what was the cause.

As the mare is a repeat offender though, I would start by a close evaluation of her cervix at the time of rebreeding, as ascending placentitis as a result of cervical incompetency would be a likely possibility.

Jo....my deepest sympathy...how heartbreaking to have an anticipated pregnancy end that way. I am so sorry for your loss. I hope that you are able to brainstorm and figure out what is up with your mare. My mare delivered a live foal in 2003, a still born red bagged foal in 2006, and on Friday the 20th she delivered a healthy filly, after the still born we opted for a caslick. Don't know if it helped but it certainly did not hurt. Hopeful for your future, jan
