    Serenity... that could be an umbilical hernia. It depends on how big it is as to whether it will "go away" or not. Some need a minor surgery to close up to prevent complications.

    Google "equine umbilical hernias" .. you'll get alot of info there. Then have the vet look at it while he's out..

    Good question.

No one was home to stop it. I will have her checked for diseases and twins. I will have the stallion checked also. I will keep everyone updated if she is pregnant and ask questions and get advice. I have 2 homes for the baby to go to if money is to tight.
    My comment wasn't directed necessarily at you, Serenity, but to anyone who breeds without knowing anything about the horses they breed.

    I think I'm missing something here though. I think you said in a previous post that you bred another grade mare you own, to this same stallion. What happened to that foal? I was also under the impression that the stallion belonged to a neighbour, but now I'm thinking you also own the stallion, correct? This since you said you would now geld the stallion. That seems to be a responsible thing to do I think. I'm sure he will be a happier boy. Just remember, after gelding, to still keep him away from your mares for six weeks.

    What do you do with your horses, other than breed? I see you are in California where we have tons of great shows in all areas and almost every weekend. And of course, great trails and mountainous areas to ride.

    From this googled link:

    Umbilical Hernia | TheHorse.com

    The area of the abdominal wall surrounding the umbilicus is one of the last areas of the body wall to close during the development of the fetus. If there is any defect in the complete closure of the body wall in this area, it will result in an umbilical hernia. So, a foal can be born with an umbilical hernia, or the hernia can develop during the first week of life.

    The stallion belongs to my aunt. She bred him with the other grade horse and that baby is going to be 4 months old in about a week. She's healthy and energetic and growing fast! My aunt is the one that breeds, mine wasn't intentional breeding. Other then the breeding though, we trail ride up the mountain trails and ride in gymkhanas. Our trails actually lead to the gymkhana grounds.

    Lizzie, I think the stallion and the other mare are owned by a relative.. this might be why you are confused when she used the term "we" to refer to horses that are on the same premises. It sounds like she keeps her horse on the property with this other relative's horses.

    The other mare foaled in February, I believe she has stated previously.

    That is all correct. My aunt wanted to breed her mares before the stallion is gelded and she did. I just want him to be a gelding already.

    Well, hopefully your mare isn't bred and life can continue on as usual .. and if she is, you are doing your research and learning what you can.

    OK. I understand now. Is it your four month old who has the umbilical hernia? What has the vet said about it?

    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.
