I've been breeding mares for over 30 years. I've bred most with live cover and have been doing AI for the past 10 years. Friends of mine called about a maiden mare they had sent out to be bred. They were told that the stallion owner let the mare and stallion out together to be pasture bred. She was going to breed them again in two days. She then calls the mare owner and tells her she thinks the mare is going to colick. She claims to have hand bred them in the morning. The mare is in shock and trembles at a touch. She's taken to the Vet where it's discovered that she has been punctured through the vaginal wall and into the stomach. A hole the size of your fist exists. She required surgery to sew her back up. Her back is full of bite marks and she's been kicked repeatedly. This is an eight year old show mare who carries young kids in walk-trot classes. She's not agressive with other horses. Personally, I wasn't aware that the mare could be punctured during breeding. I've heard of small tears but nothing of this magnitude. Anyone else have experience with this sort of injury? It looks like she was hit at an angle by an over agressive stallion. Any ideas on prognosis? I've told the owner's I would expect her to founder or colick from the stress of the ordeal. So far she seems to be handling everything but she's far from healed. Bonni

Bonni that poor mare.. it does sound like an over aggressive stallion...

I am not sure I would want a mare pasture bred.. unless she (mare) and the stallion are real familar with each other.. ( also this mare being a maiden mare did not know how to deal with the stud a more seasoned mare might have taught the stallion some manners.)

Also you would ahve to know the mare is definitely in season and receptitive.

It is not only risky for the mare but the stallion as well.. One well placed kick by the mare can put the stallions breeding abilities at risk..

Now she may have jeopardized this mare's future ability to be bred and carry a foal to term.

Does she have a real good reproductive vet in her area? Liz
