I looked through posts and could not find one pertaining to this subject. What are the risks of hauling a healthy 9 year old mare in her 8th to 9th month gestation approximately 12 hours, with stops to rest along the journey.

As long as you make sure she's not stressed, and has plenty of water along the way, I don't see any harm in it ;)

I know of mares who have been imported from Europe, to the US late in pregnancy like that.

She is calm when being hauled but has not been hauled much. She also has a buddy at the farm she is at the the owner has some concerns about seperating them if that would cause problems for wither one. She would be going from Georgia to Nebraska.

I wouldnt worry about the trailer ride as long as she has plenty of food and water. Stress would concern me a little Id try trailering her about 10 miles and just sit for an hour if she raises hell the whole time you know she needs her buddy. (shes going to carry on at first but if she keeps it up the whole hour you may reconsider hauling her alone

I would not be hauling her it would be a hauler and it is the woman who owns her now that is concerned that she would lose her foal over this?? The mare is a very sweet and calm mare and is due Jan 21st

I would have the woman who owns her now haul her a short distance and see how she does if she does fine have the hauler pick her up if not then you my have to wait to avoid loosing the foal

Well, she is on her way in a box stall and seems to be doing fine. It was the mares buddy that got upset when seperated so the woman put her with another mare and she was okay. This mare is very very calm and was sharing hay with a gelding and content as soon as she was loaded..she will be here tomorrow.
Thank you for all the advice.
Susan

that's good susan. I'm sure she'll be just fine. If she's calm by nature anyway...it's not too late in pregnancy to haul.
