Hi Everyone,

Still looking at stallions to put to my mare and the list is getting shorter so will post a shortlist soon for fun...

In the mean time, the stud I went to today suggested an antibiotic flush the day before a live cover and the day after and then a course of antibiotics at 3 times throughout pregnancy as this could have been the reason she foaled prematurely last time (5 years ago) when the foal didn't make it.

My vet (equine breeding specialist from Willesley) suggested a vaccination at 3, 6 and 9 months for EHV (I think) as that could have been the reason for the premature foaling.

I am not a massive fan of drugs and prefer not to use them unless necessary and wondered if anyone had opinions either way... Obviously I really want a healthy foal and really don't want history to repeat itself so if this is what I need to do then I will.

Can they hurt the foal, could they cause developmental problems, should I feed a probiotic to counter the bad bits?

I will call the vet tomorrow for his opinion on the antibiotics but I would really appreciate other opinions too.

Thanks,

Emma

I would most definately vaccinate your mare. Not big on the flushing with antibiotics pre breeding, I will give an antibiotic treatment once post breeding. Pre breeding I use a drug called Equstm and give that until ovulation on problem mares.
