unexpected possible pregnancy...a quick question re: worming
well it seems my plan to breed my mare and my stallion have come to fruition a little earlier than i planned. my qh stally broke his fence (dnt even ask me how lol) and got to my tb mare. i left them together for a few more days until she wasnt in season anymore. i was planning on breeding them in a few months so im not completely devastated but it has caught me by surprise. fortunately she is in perfect condition so im not worried about that aspect.
i was due to worm her this weekend. can i still give her any wormer or should i buy one known to be safe for pregnant mares? im assuming the latter. of course im not 100% sure she has taken but at this stage i would rather treat her as though she were pregnant.
ill get the vet out at some point over the next 6 weeks to confirm pregnancy. i have to admit im pretty excited :)
