If my filly that is only 21 mths old is bred is is wrong to abort the foal? She was not intentially bred! She got out of her fence today and so did the stallion that is her daddy. I wasnt home and no one knows if he did breed her. But if he did and it took, should I consider aborting the foal? Do to her being so young and the daddy being her daddy. Please help! I wouldnt even consider this if it was under completely different circumstances.

Deanna,
Call your vet. There is a shot(s) that they can give. My understanding is that before 90 days it is a lot better than if you wait until after the 90 day period. I think it gets to be a lot more involved of a process and not so good on the mare after that.

I think it would be best. Cause if the dad is her dad then there would be prolbmes with the foal and it may not survive, or have a defect. Good luck!

I think I have read on the board talk about pinching in relation to aborting a twin when a mare is found to be carrying 2 embryos. Is that something that would work here? At what point in the gestation is that no longer an option?
