A friend's mare just aborted a foal at 10 months the mare did the same thing last year same time 10 months the mare was given all rhino shots she is 20yr old. Any one have any ideas what could cause this at that time. Last year we had a large population of eastern tent worms (they were everywhere) that was blamed for alot of mares aborting around here. So far this year we haven't seen any yet. when does infected fescue cause mares to abort? I always thought it was in the beginning. She has another older mare that aborted 2 weeks later last year and she is worried about that mare now. Any ideas?

  • Incompetent cervix;
  • Placentitis (possibly as a result of above);
  • EVA;
  • Rhino (despite the vaccination - it's not always going to protect);
  • Leptospirosis;
  • Endophyte exposure (Fescue - anytime now);
  • Placental insufficiency;
I could go on - that's just a start.

What did the necropsy show? If your friend was serious about wanting to find out what caused it, she will (I hope) have had a necropsy performed. Without one, you might as well put the above list in a hat with each item on a single piece of paper and pick one out - it will be as reliable as any other form of internet conjecture.

Thanks Jos, I don't think she'll have a necropsy preformed. But thanks again for the info. Have you heard of the connection between the eastern tent worms and mares aborting.
