I have wormed her once since I got her, and will again in a couple of weeks. I was told she was wormed right before the brought her here, but I'm not sure that was true. Yes, I will need to get the vet out! I'm really worried not just because of her age, but because of the poor health she was in when I got her---she was extremely underweight. She still needs to put more weight on, but is coming along well.

Everything can be achieved through patience!

I'd rather have a problem horse than a problem man. The horse I can work with. The man---I cannot help!

Depends on the horse. Age, health, whether or not the mare has bred before are only a few things that need to add up in order to decide whether or not a horse is in good shape to carry a foal to term safely. If you are not sure, consult with a vet.

I knew a horse that was breed at a year old and had a foal just after she turned two, it's definitely possibly.

When I bred show miniatures, I didn't breed until they were 3. Even then with them there was always a 50/50 chance that there would be complications with foaling. Needless to say, I didn't breed for to long.

I've heard of people breeding horses into their late 20's. I guess it depends on the horse.

I knew a mare that had wicked bloodlines...they bred her (well, harvested her eggs) until the ripe old age of 38
