The TB mare that I co-own is caslicked. Her conformation isnt really bad, we are planning on leaving her caslicked until before she foals next year because we are doing AI with her this year. A couple of questions I have are;
1) Because she has been caslicked for about 6-7 years, when we take the caslicks out before she foals next spring, can we just leave them out? Or should they be redone because she has always had them done.
2) Kind of an odd question, but what if the mare aborts at say 280 days (just a random number), and she has not been uncaslicked?

My Swedish Warmblood mare aborted her last foal at 150 days last time she was bred. The vet suggested she be caslicked, but I am worried about her aborting, and still be caslicked.

Thanks!

1: If you plan on rebreeding the mare, it will be necessary to replace the Caslick's procedure, as there will be a compromising of the vulval seal as a result of prior removal of tissue to place the Caslick's. Even if not rebreeding, in order to assist in keeping the mare "clean", it still may be advisable for the same reason.

2: If a mare with a Caslick's procedure in place aborts in late term, it can be messy. See that article about vulval injuries (follow that link) for more details.

I know that my mare had a Caslick's with this last foal she had. I don't indend to breed her again so we had her sewn back up so that she stay nice and clean...
