NDappy I have mares that are bred for very good valuable foals. These 3 mares are the future of my breeding program. Those foals need to be sound and alive when foaled. One of these mares will be 18 when she foals and I paid a very good sum for her last year. I want to get at least 4 foals out of this mare. Losing one foal will not hurt me financially but in terms of replacing and recovering the cost of this mare it will hurt my program especially if she is hard to get back in foal next year.
I am responsible for the welfare of these horses and I take this very seriously.
I am not being an alarmist but I will be informed and make my decision
Asking question is not blaming anyone it is simply being informed. Shalom
