Mood swings is right. If a mare's delivery is normal with no tears, infections, etc. then foal heat breeding is an option. I've had mares settle on foal heat and then you an additional "month ahead" for the next year Regarding therapies, talk to your vet.
A lot also depends on the mare and her history. Some will and some won't. We had one mare that absolutely would not settle on foal heat but would typically the next heat cycle.
If everything goes normally with the delivery and your vet sees no problems, then try it and go with his advice on any therapies, hormones, etc. Your mare may or may not settle on foal heat, like Mood Swings says, it can also be a risk to the check book!
