Two year old Filly

Well here I go I just bought afilly almost 2 month a go .. she is registered quarter horse she is Kid Klu 1988 grandaughter.. . Well I had her at a friends house and we clashed on the training so I moved her this past friday to a new trainer he is great.
but we have a problem she was in a stall and she got out in to the pasture with his litttle stud colt that is 17 monthes old ... and they don't no hhow long she was out there with him .. that been so bad if jim didnt notice that she was actually in season .. so how big is the possibialites that she is pregnant ... and do feel that my border should pay the vet bills if so

Your looking at a 50-50 chance. You need to have her assessed by a vet. None of us here can tell you if she's bred or not. But it's likely. A 17 month old colt can definitely get the deed done, and since it's spring, your filly very well could have been in season. If she is bred, the vet can lute her and terminate the pregnancy, but there is a window of time for it to be done in so it's best to know sooner rather than later.

As for them paying for the bill, well, accidents do happen. Especially with horses. If they were supposed to be in charge of making sure that your filly was safe and settled in, then I'd want them to pay for it. But I think that it could turn out to be very ugly if the owners don't see things from your point of view. I know that's not very helpful, but I can see both sides. They may try to argue that YOUR filly just in with the colt...Not the COLT jumping in with the filly, therefore it's your horse that caused the problems, therefore it's your bill.

Good luck.

It's not worth guessing. Get the vet out to examine her and if she was bred, it can be taken care of easily and noninvasively with a shot to bring her back into heat.

The colt was where he was supposed to be so it's not the responsibility of his owner on this one. If you're boarding and your filly got in with the colt, than you need to have a serious talk with the BO. Fences aren't secure and running colts next to mares is an accident waiting to happen. Any colt older than 6 months should be treated as a potential breeding animal and should be managed accordingly.

No the shot will not hurt her.

Two years old is very young to have a foal. Her joints have yet to close up, and all the extra weight of a foal can stress her knees. She's still just a baby herself, and for her to foal at three would take some toll on her body.

Prudence dictates a lute shot and if you want to breed her then breed her when she is older with a complimentary stallion of your choice and not a 17 month old colt. The cost of a lute shot is so small it is not worth worrying about, and if she is a good broodmare prospect she deserves a better stallion...

ITA with Faceman. In regards to your objection to ending the life of a potential foal, are you willing to risk ending the life of your filly by proceeding with this potential pregnancy and delivery for which her age and undeveloped system could easily be considered a complication?

Umm would yall quit being rude ... I didnt breed her on purpose if you read the post it tell you what happend.... Another update I found out from my border that his gelding got in the stall with her and tried mounting her.. and she didnt like that so she jumped out of the stall and that's how she ened up with the 17 month old stud colt and four other geldings...

YES I DO PLAN ON SAVING MY MARE SO PLEASE KEEP THOSE KINDS OF RUDE REMARKS TO YOUR SELF on that not I talked to a vet he said no need to get him out just yet to wait for 21 days to see if she goes back in to season. Then if she don't the give her the shot... our vet said we might have not noticed her going in heat cause its hard to tell sometimes with horses that young

But I do plan on breeding her when she gets older to a cremmello stud that way I have a better chance to get a buckskin or palomino.... I mean with her bloodlines who wouldnt wanna breed her ... but like I said I am going to wait until she is a least 4 to 5 years old ... I done talk to my border and he said that would be an ok age .... I WILL KEEP YALL UP DATED
