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".
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.
