The SI joint and the pelvis are major anatomical players in a pregnancy. I would not want to subject a mare to more possible pain. It her problem is undiagnosed, or not healed, how can the vet know that a pregnancy will not cause her serious pain?

Texasblaze this is one of the reasons I found it more economical to buy a stallion than pay a vet or breeding facility all that money. Shalom

It might be more Economical for you db however I only breed 1 mare every few years and I have no experience with stallions. Plus all the studs around here have terrible conformation and are not the discipline I want. I live amid ranches and cow horses but I'd have to travel nearly 4 hours to find a stud worth breeding her too then the question of IF they live cover comes up. Also I don't have fencing for a stallion. So a.i is a much better choice. I'm hoping this baby comes out a colt though because In 1 1/2 years I will be out of college and working with a trainer and hope to get a colt worth keeping a stud.

I'm assuming owner does not have a stallion so unless they are breeding locally they will bein the same boat as the rest of us A.Iers.

OP, have you had a chiro look at your mare? They might be able to figure out and possibly fix whatever is ailing her in her hind end.

As it is, with a mystery lameness, I would be extremely hesitant to breed her regardless of her bloodlines, conformation, temperament, etc. First and foremost, her health and well being is the most important thing.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:
