Hey, my mare is due for Pnumabort at 5 mos that would be next month, and I am wondering what would be a cheap way to have the vet check for her pregnancy? Also, I am contemplating bording a friends horse for a month while she goes down south (lucky dog!) and I am nervous about introducing an illness since my horses are isolated at my house. If her horse is utd on all shots should I still worry? I have spent WAY to much money to take a silly chance!

At 150 days, it may be tricky for your veterinarian to detect a pregnancy by palpation per rectum alone. Ultrasound should indicate status, or you can run a total estrogen or estrone sulfate blood hormone assay on the mare.

The only way to be sure the visiting mare does not introduce anything to your farm is not have her visit...!!!! Certainly quarantining her for 30 days before she is introduced to the general population of your farm is a sensible move and one that most larger breeding operations would require. Additionally, the visiting mare should be up to date on her own immunizations prior to visiting, and have come from a facility that is certified as having been free from infectious diseases for the preceding 30 days.

I believe this horse has been at home alone for at least two weeks now, so by the time I get her she won't have had contact with another horse for at least 30 days. Is it still to risky? Am I just paranoid?

Oh, she is about 19 years old and is up to date on all shots (I need to ask her about a coggins though)
Also, thank for the advice on palpation, I guess I could spend the 38 dollars and have her u/s'd. :-)
