    Foal
    I'm hoping she isn't bred. She's a good gymkhana horse and I won't be able to ride her for a while if she has a baby.

    My youngest granddaughter is just starting in gymkhana and our old Haffie who has been doing it now for many years, has just been retired. He won't like being retired, but he's at least 30 now and we know he must be just a pasture puff, since he has arthritis. If you do gymkhana in S. Cal., you will know Dandy and his rider, Katie.

    Well, my aunt has herself convinced it's just an "outy bellybutton" psh, okay. I'll tell her today what it is and tell her to call a vet. About Dandy and Katie, where in S. Cal.? I'm located in waaaaaay Southern, Ca. I'm by the border of Mexico. I ride my horse to the border all the time.

    Well the vet should have seen the foal at least a couple of times by now and told your aunt if there was something wrong.

    Since you are waaaay south, I doubt you would have been in contact with those of us who are a lot north of LA.

    Foal
    Yes, I know the vet should have been down here a few times by now. Though, my aunt seems to always know what's going on and never needs a vet. But that's not the case. I'll make sure a vet comes down and checks my mare, the foal, and gelds the stallion.

    Never needs a vet? Yikes. I admit we seldom need a vet for much, but what about checking a newborn for IgG levels and what about shots youngsters and older horses need? Does your aunt do all this herself?

    Lizzie, I don't think the OP has any control over her aunts breeding practices ....

    NDappy I don't know what tirade you are referring to. MOST mares do foal without complications. That's an undisputed fact.
    It is far more dangerous to ride a horse in any advanced discipline than to breed that mare. One is natural , breeding, one is not riding. Or keeping a horse in a stall for any length of time.
    I state my opinion one based on 46 years of horse ownership 30 years of breeding.
    I never asked that you agree with it. However when someone continually ask the tired question "are you prepared to......"
    Any one so paranoid over losing a foal or so attached to the mare never needs to breed, or ride for that matter.
    If you are not financially secure , or IMO own your own property, you should not breed period.
    The OP is trying to learn here.
    Giving her advice to prevent complications is all well and good. She needs it.
    Trying to frighten her into your way of thinking is about control.
    Taking offense because someone gives another opinion belies low self esteem. Shalom

    No, I never did think she had. It does sound though, that the OP might have learned what she does know, from an aunt who isn't necessarily doing everything correctly.

    Well, even though we've had a few ups and downs with the OP, I tend to think she's young and has been willing to learn from a lot of advice, given here by others.
