We are thinking of buying a mare who retained a placenta on her last foal. I don't know much about the reasons or what was done for it. Are there questions I should ask the owner? If we were to breed this mare what chance is there she would retain again? We might want to raise a foal or two.

Without knowing the cause for the retention (and sometimes there is no obvious cause) one cannot predict likelihood of repetition.

Low selenium may cause placental retention, but that is not the sole cause, however if that were the cause in this case and the nutrition was changed to balance selenium levels, it may not repeat.

I have a mare that has had trouble with retained placenta.She is now 17yrs & has had many foals.Don't know her previous history with it,We have had her 5 yrs.Her first foal for us she retained her placenta.Had to get vet out,she said it wasn't bad just her uterus tipped forward a bit & wasn't enough traction for her to pass on her own,she had no trouble extracting it.Next year decided to have some oxytocin on hand just in case.She wasn't wanting to pass placenta with next foal either so gave her the oxytocin & one shot she was able to pass it herself.This year again got a shot to have on hand,but never had to use it,she passed it right away on her own.
