Accidental filly bred

We have a nine year old Paint breeding stud that created a hole in the fence and a twelve month old filly got in. The filly had several minor bites and bruising on her sides that she did not want touched. Our concern now is how we should deal with this filly if she is bred at such a young age?

I would go ahead and take her to the vet. I find it pretty unlikely that she has been bred but I would want some of those injuries checked out.

Yes, I need to have a vet check her out. I'm pretty sure the bruising is from his front feet. This filly weighs no more then 300 pounds, will this filly have problems delivering at such an early age?

I'd have the vet abort the foal, if the filly is indeed bred. She's far too young. She's still a baby herself.

Yea definitely abort it. A horse should be 3 before they are bred.

Please for the sake of the filly, abort the foal, and make the fencing more secure - it's not recommended to have to abort twice in a row.

Oh gosh, she is way too young. If she is pregnant, abort. Otherwise you may lose her in the process.

A vet can and will needle the filly to ensure she does not remain pregnant if he did breed her.
The biggest concern, by not taking this action, is that even though the filly is small-the foal will be full sized and drastically impede her growth. Liklihood is that you will lose both.
Sounds like a strong line of electric is needed on your perimeter fence to ensure mr studly doesn't attempt that again--either that or a slip of the knife to change his life.

I agree with everyone else. Get the vet out and have the pregnancy aborted & then get that fence more secure.

Please call the vet out and abort the foal. This would be a high risk pregnancy. What type of pony is this that weighs only 300 pounds at a year? Your baby is growing and I'd be afraid you'd likely lose her and the baby if you allow a pregnancy to continue.

Can you geld the stud and/or get much better fencing?
