Has anyone had a broodmare that had a c-section and went to produce healthy foals after it?
I'm looking at a broodie that had a dystocia in 2008 (head flipped back) and had an emergency c-section. The current owner says there was minimal trauma to the uterus, and vets at MSU said she could have rebred in 2008 even. Dunno though...
I'd have a culture and biopsy done before purchase, but am looking for anyone with experience.
Mares can and do go on to produce foals normally following a C-section. Adhesions and other issues however may impact the ability. I would recommend a thorough pre-breeding pre-purchase evaluation by a veterinarian specializing in equine reproduction.
