My family has been breeding QHs for 70 years and before that generations of riding horses. We have owned this land since 1837. Horses have been bred continously since then.
Now I don't need you to validate anything I say. I refuseto validate your opinions for you.
Since it must bother you so much that I don't agree with the way you are presenting your opinion or have one of my own. My last sentence in my previous post might just apply to you.
Just wondering, what's the worst situation you've had with breeding your mares?

I was just out with my mare to grain her.. I saw on her, lady parts.. She had dry white crusty stuff.. I don't know if that's from "flirting with the stallion", pee, or what..

When is your vet coming out to look at her and geld the stallion? If it was me I would've had the vet out as soon as possible. Everyday is another day of not knowing...I'm not trying to be rude at all I just think that maybe you should have the vet out like real real soon...

I'll ask my aunt when she's having the vet out and if it's not soon enough I'll call the vet out.

Serenity, allow me to apologize for some of the less than civil post you have read.
You seem young and willing to learn. Its sad that others choose to ignore those qualities and only want to argue. Most adults have mature conversations not all but most.
I have lost a foal of my own and a couple from rescues. Nothing we could have done to prevent the loss. My foal was positioned wrong and it took to long to foal. The mare survived and had a very nice filly 2 years later.
The rescues probably lost their foals due to malnutrition.
It happens. That life. In the 53 years of my life my family and I have lost about 5 foals and never a mare.
You need to be prepared for the worst. Get the US, and ensure she is current on all her shots. Take every precaution you can. All that is good advice. Including getting the genetic test done.
I also think NDappy and Golden Horse want to help you avoid having to deal with the loss of an anticipated foal. Once again your young there is plenty of time for you to learn the hard lessons in life. Some not all can be avoided.
There is no need to worry the whole 11 months or more a mare carries a foal.
You will worry enough during foal watch.
If she is pregnant you have plenty of time to ask questions and become informed. Educate your self and feed that mare a good quality hay/ pasture and ration in her last trimester. Shalom

Thank you for the help :) what if the rescue is healthy and no longer malnourished? Can she still have problems due to the neglect in the past? My horse is healthy now. She just needs a few more pounds because she was treated for strongyles.

She should be alright serenity. If she had a bad case of worms for a long time ask your vet about anything that might be a problem. They will know.
Never be afraid to ask for help. That takes courage and wisdom.
All the posters have given you sound advice about your mare.
I don't think anyone thinks your irresponsible or at fault. Don't take everything you read here personally. Even if it is meant as an insult. The insult says a lot about the person being petty and immature. Not one thing about you.
Since you have the vet coming out may I make a suggestion?
Go back over the thread and make a list of questions for the vet.
Keep us posted and once again good luck. Shalom

I'll make a list for sure! She was wormed when I got her and she was fine but her winter coat wouldn't come out so I wormed her recently with zimecterin gold.

Serenity, not everyone unfairly/aggressively judges people seeking help. I, like db, must take care to approach my patients without judgement or bias, or else I will never be able to truly help them. I see time and time again, on forums where people have anonymity, that there are always those few dispense with basic courtesy and respect. (If anyone is offended by this, the question then is, why? - unless it applies to you) Don't let them bother you; they are not important. You, and your horse, are.
Take the information that is helpful, which has been offered from knowledgeable people, and disregard the rest. You'll find many here are very motivated to offer sincere assistance.
The health and welfare of your mare is the priority here, and there's been quite a few great points made. Making a list for the Vet is a great idea, as we always forget to ask "the doctor" when he'she is present, whether it's a human or equine patient. Good luck with your girl and keep us informed. :)
