I had to put my mare on Regumate and antibiotics to keep her from early foaling which she did last yr at 7 weeks before due date. I lost the foal. My question is what to expect when she is removed from the hormones as far as delivery the next day or is there a "usual" or is it all just dependent on each individual mare. She has bagged up, very uncomfortable for about a week with some minimal bloody dried material around the vulva. She almost seems to be digressing instead of progressing over the past 2 days. Tomorrow will be her 1st day of no regumate. Just throwing this out for comment in case anyone else has had similar situation. Her actual due date is the 21Feb. Huge draft mare, 2nd pregnancy. First foal showed no signs of placentitis or infection but we did flush/lavage and rebred without any complications. Pregnant on the first live cover breeding.

Mares can abort or foal through Regumate (i.e. even though they are being treated with Regumate), so stopping the Regumate is not going to be a trigger for foaling.

Also please be aware that there is no such thing as a "due date" in the equine! Follow that link for more details.

Chuck..it sounds like your mare is just shaping up...does she have any type of milk yet? how about her tummy has she gotten the v look to her? Fingers and Toes crossed for you to have a safe healthy foaling!

Chuck, Our repro vet was here and told us the same...she can foal through Regumate. Good luck!

Thank you all, Jos- I know about the due date it's just an idicator for us, especially till we get somewhat of a pattern if any on a certain mare. We very seldom have a mare go past 343 days but we always use that number for a "due date".

The mare is definitely looking like she might foal tonight. Since posting this today, she has kicked in some serious continual contractions.

I was just wondering if stopping the regumate would trigger the foaling within a time frame but from what folks are saying here, it sounds as though it really doesn't make any difference.

She has milk, it's opaque but not streaming out or losing clostrum with contractions (yet). We are all sitting in the house glued to the monitor!

I'll let you all know the outcome, Thanks again!

She's here!!! Huge bay filly born early this morning at 1:30 PST. I'll try and get up a couple photos, we are still trying to get the nursing thing accomplished. Would be a lot easier if her legs weren't SOOO long and wobbly!
Thank you all for your comments.

Be aware of the fact that is the mare had placentitis during pregnancy, the foal is at high risk for neonatal septicaemia, so you might want to talk to your vet about a prophylactic course of antibiotics.

Jos- we ran the mare through a course of SMZ's prior to foaling. Would this not cover the possibility of septicaemia? The vet has been here and we are putting the foal on tribrissen as a prophylactic measure.

Pics coming as soon as I can load them on shutterfly

Angel- She weighs in at 138lbs. Haven't been able to get any kind of height measurement. She is still completely down on her pasterns but at least she's now nursing walking and thriving. It's typical for these big draft foals to take a few days or a week to get up on their back legs. Too much bone length to control with no muscle at birth. She's gonna be a contender, for sure

SMZ's prior to foaling will probably help, and the course of antibiotics at foaling will too, but keep a good close eye on the foal, and if you see any signs of sickness, make sure you get heavy-duty antibiotics into it without delay!

Jos- Will do! Thanks again for your input. We are naming here "Reign". She has made tremendous improvements. We were very aggressive in staying ahead of the curve with her. They go downhill so fast! Been there done that, unfortunately.

Here are a couple more photos from day 2.
