I've got a mare that I've had lots of trouble in the past getting her to hold her pregnacies and this year she's holding well, currently at 118 days. She is on regumate this time due to vet recommendation. My vet and I have been discussing the issue of when to start weaning her of of it. Anyone have any experience with this and have some suggestions for me? Thanks so much!

Hi Jackie,

Congrats on her hanging in there. Getting exciting! The year we put my mare on Regumate we weaned her off after she hit her 150 day mark. I am sure Jos has the best advice. My vet said that at that time the mare is producing the right amount of hormones. Good Luck!

I have had awful luck with weaning off of Regumate, if I truly have a mare who needs it she stays on it until 30 days prior to foaling.

This is discussed in the article about Regumate use (follow that link).

Thanks for the info! I have read the regumate article. I was just looking to hear more on what different people have experienced with their own mares and coming off regumate. I think I will try to start weaning off after 5 months, but I'm not sure yet... Thanks again!
