If a mare suffers an injury to her leg about 5 or 6 weeks pregnant can she abort from the stress of the injury?

Yes, it is possible.

When my mare was about 4 weeks pregnant she sustained a pretty bad laceraction to her hock. I just took special care to make sure the stress level was kept very low :] And she delivered a lovely filly.

I don't think I've ever had a case of just the "stress" of an injury causing an abortion. In just about every instance where I've had an injured mare abort, it was usually due to complications stemming from the injury. Infections, laminitis, colic all can be devastating complications to the injured pregnant mare if not managed properly. Reproduction at any stage is a luxury, not an absolute.

I've had mares with catastrophic laminitis deliver healthy, full-term babies. The same with septic injuries and violent colics, there are plenty of success stories. Unfortunately, I've also had my share of abortions that are still complete mysteries.

Thank you. I was going to have her palpated last Thursday, but the injury happened on Tuesday. We had to tranquilize her several times to fix her leg and I decided not to palpate on Thursday when he came out to US my other mare (MINI) I didnt want to have to drug her again. She didnt come back into her heat after the breeding and as long as she doesnt come back in again I will have her palpated next month or just send off blood.
I am hoping the stress and the injury will not cause her to abort. I am hoping for a healthy foal from her. So far its been a week and she hasnt coliced and no signs of infection.She did clip a peice of the tendon and she is limping. My poor girl.

We had a mare suffer a catastrophic injury to her chest last year during the May 24 weekend (fireworks scared her into a post :o ) She was only a few months into her pregnancy. She was started on a double dose of regumate along with numerous other drugs related to her injury and succesfully carried her foal to term :-) I would have her palpated if you are concerned because she wouldn't come back into heat for another month if she did abort. Good luck :-)

Today she would be about the 40th to 50th day if she is bred. Yesterday, she was hanging out with the neighbors gelding at the fence. ( she likes to show to him) Well she nuzzled with him, kicked and turned and squatted and peed. But she only did it once then went along her merry way munching on the grass. Usually she will stand there and do this for days on end. So I have no idea what to think.
Anyone?

My Arabian, who is, for lack of better terms, a slut. When she is pregnant she will still hang around the boys, and sometimes she will even squat and pee, but she wont be "winking" or acting as if she is really in heat. I would have blood drawn, or get her palpated just to be safe, but I bet your foal is okay :D

Samantha, thank you. My mare is usually extremely showy to the neighbors gelding. I really hope she does ok. This is my first time breeding her, She is one of those accident prone mares who less than a year ago suffered a huge laceration to her rear cannon and it took 6 months to heal. Now we are back to fixing her front leg.
Even though she is winking I still see her behavior as dramatically different, I also did the pregna mare and it showed positive, but it would even if she lost, so I am going to see the vet soon. Thanks again!
