Do to massive flooding and a frenzy to get all my horses to high ground. My stallion has picked up a few more girlfriends than he was supposed to. I need these mares aborted but not sure of the time frame I have or the risk involved. Mares were covered yesterday and today.

You will have to wait until 6 days after ovulation and give Prostaglandin F.

How will I know when they ovulate? I can't exactly haul them to the vet right now.

You won't. You'll have to guesstimate.

If you presume that they have a 6 day average estrus, and that they would ovulate in the last 24-48 hours of that time period, if you aren't actually able to tease the mares to determine if they're still in estrus, then you can presume that 12 days after the covering they should be at least 6 days post-ovulation, give your first shots then. To be sure, you can give a second dose of Prostaglandin F 7 days after the first. Then to be absolutely sure, you can preg. check them at about 21 days after the covering as well, which should give you a 14-21 day pregnancy (or rather hopefully not).

Thank you so much. I'm not a fan of aborting but I'm not left with a choice. Is there a risk to the mares? Also what about mares with foals at side?

The risk is minimal. The usual caveats apply to the use of Prostaglandin F - possible colic being the worst scenario (other than anaphylaxis). The likelihood is low though.

Remember that Prostaglandin F is a naturally-occurring hormone that is released by the endometrium each cycle to cause a return to estrus, so all you are really doing is resetting the mare's clock, so to speak.
