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 :)
