Hi Jo My 18 month old Colt(Welsh X) got in with one of my mares (welsh X) that I did not want to breed and especially not to him, Her sire is his grand-sire. In a previous post you stated...
"The trouble with the mares possibly being 4 months along is that a single dose of prostaglandin may not result in abortion. You can certainly try it, but I would feel more comfortable at this stage if I knew what was going on if they were my mares, so I would definitely contact your veterinarian and have the mares scanned to determine pregnancy status. You can then try using prostaglandin to cause an abortion, but it may require several doses over the course of several days.
Talk to your vet... "
My question is how often & how much prostaglandin, she is 14.1 about 1000 lbs.? The colt got to her the beginning of December. My vet is not a repro vet and just said one shot ??? Should I see some evidence of her aborting, when? She is in a small paddock (24'X75'). She is definitely in foal. Prostaglandin was given today, not sure how much but will find out tomorrow. Any info will be greatly appreciated.
Your best bet is talk to a vet that knows. If your current vet is not suitable, you need to find another vet.
