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.

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 hope she isnt in foal, its a good thing you rescued her!

Just wondering whats the oldest a mare can have a foal?

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

Wow into their 20's I don't think I would breed that late (jmo)
    11-04-2008, 03:50 PM
Yeah I don't think I would either, but that's just my opinion

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