The sooner she gets the shot the beter. It would be best to have it done this week.

BTW you did say money was a problem when you said "Horse abortion...I can only imagine what that's going to cost."
Are you sure that the only reason the three old mares died was age related? Horses can die at any age with their first or last foal. We do what we can to reduce the chance of loosing mare and/or foal. Life isn't perfect, it is unpredictable, and even the unseen can happen. There are countless factors that play apart of the final outcome.

Haven't you noticed in some of the breeding threads how often it is mentioned that the health and LIFE of your mare is put at risk when you breed? And these mares are in their prime with owners that are considering breeding their favorite mare.

If the vet is called on Monday, there shouldn't be any risk to the mare if she gets a shot to stop an unwanted pregnancy. Which is much cheaper than the prenatal care and potential foal care if she were bred and successfully carried a foal.

And by the way, my sister bred her 17 year old maiden mare last spring and she is watching her very closely with diet and exercise to improve her odds of having a healthy mare and foal in a little more than 2 months from now. At this current point in time, she is doing very well at almost 18 years old with her first and only pregnancy.

Well it's hard to take the opinion of someone seriously when they can't even spell a word they learned in the 2nd grade. But you're right. I am horrible at math. Failing College Trig as we speak.

And no, actually. I said "I can only imagine what that's going to cost." Not "omg abortion is too expensive! What am I going to do!? I can't afford that!"

But let's leave it alone. Thanks for your help, nonetheless.

Just wondering, but shouldnt the owner of the stallion be paying for the abortion, consider they are not allowed a astallion at that place and he got in with your mare -who you had no intention of breeding. If he/she didnt pay for the abortion and it was my mare, I would be incredibly peeved. Just saying...

I know its a risk at any age, but these 3 mares, it was because of their age. The older they get, the higher the risk. I personally wouldn't risk it.

Original post says : I went to a friend's place to pick her up for a trail ride...(It happened at her place)

She is a friend of mine and this was no one's fault-- and apparently Christ himself couldn't keep this guy out lolol-he jumped 2 fences (One with barbed wire) and got into her stall.

But heck yeah! If this happened at MY barn, well then.....different post! Lolol

They should still be paying the abortion.... it may not be their fault the stallion got out and bred her but she did not concent to a breeding and has clearly stated that she wouldnt have bred her mare, the stallions owner should be taking responsibilty for the covering.

**UPDATE**

Don't know if this makes much of a difference, but apparently a neighbor saw and heard the commotion and noticed my mare was bucking out at him and trying to avoid him in the stall.

(They have no horse knowledge and didn't know what was going on so they didn't intervene.)

Does her not being very receptive to him make a difference?

OP, there's no need to be nasty. Just get the vet out, get the shot and have him / her look your mare over and everything should be fine.

EDIT because you guys are so quick.
If he mounted then, he mounted, regardless of whether she liked it or not. If you're not sure whether or not the deed was done, call the vet. Better to be safe than sorry.
