I know, I know, not every mare with previous pelvic injuries can/should be bred. But my mare sustained the injury as a three year old, I'm assuming that is also when she injured her left hind fetlock, which is what caused her from having a career on the track.

Anyways, she has successfull had 5 foals, no issues. She is 10 years old now, and I got her late last year. Being the worrying person that I am, I was wondering if there is anything in particular as far as complications that go along with this? I am not sure of the exact details, I was told that she "fractured her pelvis in an accident when she was 3".

You can see in the last picture (above her pedigree) on her page (http://secretambitionstables.com/queentyree.htm) to the upper left of her flank, there is an "indent", I am assuming this is injury related.

Anyways, if anybody has had any experiance with this, it would be GREATLY appreciated1

Without knowing the nature and extent of the injury and any remaining changes, one could not possibly start to hypothesize on whether to breed or not.

Have her evaluated by a reproductive veterinarian.

I did tell the vet about it before we started breeding work. He has said nothing about anything "abnormal". The only thing that he has mentioned is that she has a 10mm cyst.

When we have her preg checked on Monday, is there anything I should ask in specific about it?

Again - without knowing the details of the prior injury, one cannot know what to ask. Evaluation of the pelvic opening diameter would probably be most important if there has been a previous pelvic misalignment - but you don't know that, so you can't really know if it's necessary.

Talk to your vet and ask these questions - they can actually put their hand in/on the mare and decide what evaluations may be necessary or useful.

Thanks for the info Jos! I'll email her previous owner and ask for more details about the injury.
