Hi,
I have a friend who has a mare that had her foal recently and rejected it. This mare is bred out of the wazzoo in papers and her foal is worth a lot as are any others she has. She's an SE Arabian mare and all the pregnancy and foaling went by the book.

My friend let me know that I can lease this mare for my own stud, but I was wondering if she'd be likely to reject another foal and what can cause a mare to reject a foal.

If anyone has any info on rejecting mare's and foals and if it's likely to occur again I'd greatly appriciate it.

Thanks

It is recognised that there are familial traits in foal rejection, and it is also recognised as eing more common in the Arabian breed. It is therefore quite possible that the mare will reject another foal - although not guaranteed.

Thanks... Whats the possibility that the foal of the rejected mare will also reject her own foal? Does that make sence?

As I said, there is a recognised familial tendency, so certain lines are more likely to reject than others - and therefore it is a hereditary factor, so a dam that is rejected is more likely to be a rejector themselves.

Coco,
Having bred arabians and showing for over 24+ years, I can say arabian mares make great moms or not, you either have a mare that wants to be a mom or one that doesnt sometimes you have to help the mare especially if she is a first time mom. In my opionion SE mares seem to have more problems then other lines..This is only my observation, I have only had Russian lines and to date have never had a Vet called out in 21 years TG she has never colic'd or anything, She also became pregnant after 9 years of no babies on the first cover. If this mare has rejected all of her foals I would not breed her! Is this her first foal?

PS-My last mare was SE and she never became pregnant! also had other issues...

Thanks Jos, Laurie; This was either the mare's first foal or she has had one other that she did raise. (it's my friends horses from up state and she has the sister of her as well so I'm not sure which one had and raised the first foal.)

From what I remember if it was her who had the foal, then she had a normal foaling and was fine all the way through weaning.

If not the same mare then this was her first foal. If it helps any I know they moved when the last 4 months of the mare's pregnancy to up state from FL. I dont know if that'd make a diffrence.

I've always had Polish or Polish bred arabs but I've now got an up coming SE arab 2 year old colt. Had him since he was 6 months and he's a great and easy going boy, but I've not had much experiance with the Egyptian mares.
