When To Breed Your Mare

posted by Horse Owner Today    |   October 20, 2012 07:21

Question: Is it too late to breed my mare? I had her at the stud in the spring but she is very much in heat right now. Thanks

Answer:  Some rare mares display heat even when pregnant so you can confirm or rule that out by having a vet palpate her. If she is open she may or may not have a full functional heat this late in the year with mature ovulating follicles. If she does become pregnant now the pregnancy should proceed normally. Your main problem would be a September foal who would be pretty small when winter sets in. Foals do better with lots of warm spring and summer weather to run learn and grow more body mass before cold weather. *Dr. Lisa Wayman-CPVS*
