I was wondering if it is safe to use Legend and Adequan in mares to be bred. My Swedish mare is older (18), and I am planning on breeding her next month. She will also be due for another round of Legend and Adequan, but I was wondering if it is safe to use? She has a bad hock, so, I like using them to keep her riding sound for a while longer :]

I too am interested in this topic. I have a mare that I have been "learning" a lot about since I purchased her in November and she has a crooked front leg. I know they were injecting her with Legend prior to me buying her. I have not injected her since I purchased her in November and we also pulled her shoes and she is now a pasture girl. I have noticed though that she is a bit sore from time to time and I think that perhaps we should start with the stuff again to keep her more comfortable.
HOWEVER, she is a broodmare and is scheduled to go to the breeding farm next week. I don't want to give her or start her with anything that can't be continued throughout pregnancy or might screw her up (worse than the poor thing already is!!!) Lord knows she has enough problems (see my older thread about Stud-ish behavior in a mare in this section)
