No, I meant induced labor! It just depends on whether our mare could go through all of this unharmed, because the last thing we want to do is hurt her in any way, that's why he's asking his friend as she is a specialist/teacher at the gynaecology department!
We're just asking for opinions here, I do not want to induce labor and then put the foal to sleep because it is too young to survive (which is the option I called abortion), it just depends on how safe it is for our mare! I know that it would definitely be very stressful for her as her body is not ready to give birth just yet...
But he also examined her udder and said that the yellow dots do not necessarily have to be wax just yet, and the region around her tail is not really as relaxed as it could be, so she could still have another month or so! Also, it would be her first foal, so signs could or could not indicate labor..
I don't know, she looks very healthy and happy to me, so I think she should be just fine, I do not want to induce labor, I just want two healthy and happy horses after all is said and done!
