Another overlooked comment..Why did the Vet say not to breed the mare ? She could die while trying to foal ? Rip her uterus ? And the foal will probably be not a very pretty horse.;(

After her last foal the vet said not to breed her again because she had a difficult delivery. I forgot all the reasons though. It was 2 years ago.

I had her owner let her be brought over to my place so I can take care of her.
My mom paid for that vet visit 2 years ago also.
Hopefully this goes ok.

I might make a foaling thread to show how she goes. Anyone think I should?

Yes, please do. We would really like to know her progress. And thank you for taking this on. No more breedings needed.

Any pics of the stallion? This is really too bad....but hopefully will have a happy ending...that colt should be gelded or sold... I swear people should have to take some kind of course and pass a detailed exam with flying colours before being allowed to own or breed horse....

There are 3 mares here whose dams were bred back to their own sire. All the individuals though were very correct and well bred.
I would not be alarmed of the mare was correct but that picture does not show a conformationaly correct horse.
I do share the same fear as featheredfeet about the conformation of the foal.
Why did the mare have a difficult birth 2 years ago? Was the colt too big positioned wrong or was she conformationally not able to foal with ease? Shalom

Was big and she coliced a lot before she had him

If the last colt was large and is the sire of this one then there is a good chance it too will be large.
You might want to notify your vet about possible problems and watch her very closely.
I am not a fan of shadowing a mare that is about to foal. I check on them throughout the night and day. You might want to pay close attention and be available to hopefully get a vet out if any problems appear. The sooner you have assistance with any problem the better chance both amre and foal will be OK. Shalom
