I'm looking for more information about this topic, as I know extremely little about it both in humans and horses.
- Is this a common practice? Is it a reasonable action to take in a situation more along the lines of that in which you just can't take on the cost of a foal, rather than a reason like high health risks, etc?
- Is it a risky or expensive procedure?
- How long into a pregnancy do you have to safely carry out the procedure?
Trust me, if I come into a situation where I ever need to seriously consider this option I will consult my vet and work closely with him, but for now I just want to learn a little bit more for the sake of knowing.
