Last Week I took my mare to a Vet Clinic to be bred with a Stallion I had Purchased thru the Breeders Futurity. He Collected the stallion, I put my mare in the Stocks so he could AI her. Next thing I know, he's breeding my mare with out washing her first. I demanded that he stop, but he insisted that he never washes the mares off , and continued on. What kind of problems did he just give me? The mare is only 3, and this is the first time she has been bred.

While it would certainly not be my choice of technique, and would be considered incorrect by most (myself included), in all probability the worst that will have happened is that the mare's uterine immune system will have had to work a little harder than normal. The fact that she is only 3 is in her favour, as she is less likely to have reproductive problems such as delayed uterine clearance, and is therefore more likely to be able to clear any extra insult of pathogens introduced by your vet.

You might want to find a vet that has a slightly more conscientious reproductive technique for future use though... :-)

Thanks Jos, I had my personal Vet check her Post -Ove. She agreed with you. We'll see if she's pregnant on Friday the 9th. And NO, I'm not using him again, ever.

Yikes, I would run! Did your vet give her a post breeding infusion of antibiotics?

Keep an eye out for any infection signs... As long as you pay attention so that you can get her antibiotics if need be, you should be okay.

Good idea to not use him again.

You mean where herd numbers will be drastically reduced because of infertility as a result of infection? Yup - that's how it's done!

And tail hair cuts on the stallion's penis are not uncommon as well, because of course nature doesn't use tail wraps.

And serious injury to the stallion from a kick from a mare, or to the mare from an over-aggressive stallion, because nature doesn't use AI or in-hand breeding techniques.

But in nature, those non-fertile and injured stallions and mares are driven out of the herd, and once they are not in a protected herd environment they are easy prey for a passing predator, or starve to death. Domestically, we don't like to see that happen, so we do things differently from nature.

The other glorious thing in nature is that there is always another stallion or mare to come along and take the place of the injured or dead one. Unfortunately, domestically we don't always have that option, nor do we have unlimited funds to pay to clear up infections in mares or injuries in stallions.

So yes - naturally things are done differently, but that isn't necessarily going to be better for anyone in the long run.
