I have a 12 year old maiden mare. checks out healthy-reproduction and otherwise-- should she still be able to get bred easily or will it be harder? I have been told at her age being a maiden that it will be very difficult to get her bred--is that true? It did not come from a reliable source in my opinion so I am just wondering what others think. I don't want to waste my $$ trying to breed her if the chances are low she will take

My mare was a maiden at 12 and got pregnant on the first go with AI.

Unfortunately she lost that one around 290 days but not because she was a maiden.

It's taken me 5 years to pluck up the courage and try again and went for a natural covering and she got pregnant first season at the age of 17. Early days yet and fingers are crossed for a healthy pregnancy.

So, from my experience 12 will be fine. Also, I'm sure my repo vet said their prime breeding age is 3-13 and they have a 75% chance of getting pregnant on the first season. Just get all the checks done first and you should be fine in my not-very-experienced opinion

Hi Dorthy B
In my opinion all horses in our case mare are all different depending on alot of factors such as weight? other pregnacies? how in shape they are so on and so fourth. I myself have a 21 years old Arabian mare was last bred at the age of 14 had a healthy filly. I just bred her to my Arabian Stallion Prophecy by *Narandni in April she took on the first cover (live) she is doing wonderful she is due for 04/2008. So I would say to you Go fourth and try if thats what you want to do! Good luck, my fingers and toes will be crossed for you!
