Question PZP/Birth Control for Mares?

Is this available to people for private use, or is it only available for herd control for wild horses? I might like to get it for my mare if I can.

I just read that it is only an experimental drug at this time through the FDA.. So what I would do is talk to your vet or maybe a veterinary equine college since they learn about new drugs and ask them any questions you may have about it.... I hope that helps.. :)

Wow, that's nothing I've heard before. I agree with mybabysewanka, a vet could bring you something but I wouldnt rely on it.

I've never heard of anything like that, but why don't you just keep your mare away from the stallions?

If there is such a thing, it doesn't sound very reliable. I wouldn't take the chance of letting another horse happen. It's a lot safer to just keep the mare and stallion separate.

Just curious...
Why do you want birth control for your mare? Is she kept with a Stud?
Or in danger of accidental breeding? Or are you just wanting to control her heat cycles?

I have 6 mares & practice birth control with them by keeping them away from Studs when breeding isnt desired.

The best birth control is to geld the colts.

It started out as a joke. A friend of mine might get to rent 5-10 acres dirt cheap, and we were talking about moving our horses out there. I have a mare, and he has a stud, so I told him to let me know when he knew if we would get it so I could get my horse on the pill if we did get it.

I did a google search, not expecting anything to come up, but I found out about PZP, and it seems like a good idea. I'm sure we'd be able to keep them seperated, although I wouldn't mind my mare having a foal, especially with his stud, but I wouldn't purposely try to breed them. Anyways, I was just wondering if I could actually get it or not.
