I have two mares that were bred a little over 14 days ago and at least one is believed to be in foal. I was told that at 30 days post breeding, they can confirm and actually get a heart beat.

My question is, when should I bring them home? How accurate are the 14 day preg. checks and are early, spontaneous abortions common in older mares (16 and 19 years old) ?

I'd love to bring them home, but it is an all day drive to bring them home, so don't want to have to take them back to be re-bred if they are not pregnant.

Thanks for any advise anyone can give.

Hi Cjskip, what we usually do if we're covering them in Ireland we walk them in i.e drive to the stallion, up to 4 hours each way, cover them and bring them home on the same day. If they go to the UK, they have to travel by ferry over 24 hours. We then bring them home after 30 days.
Usually we scan our mares at 16 days and again at 19 days and 30 days and 45 days. Scans are accurate at 16 days plus and I know it's also visible at 14 days. I don't know how common it is but we've had mares scaned in foal at 19 days and they've lost it by 30 days or in foal at 30 days and not at 45.

If you are considering bringing them home I'd make sure they scan at 16 for twins and make sure they're in foal before you take them home. Fingers crossed for you that both are in foal
