What is her breeding?

OP- the vet will tell you more and you'll be able to choose accordingly at that time. Keep us updated.

Thanks! She truly was a gem. I wish I had met her in her younger days. Would have loved some foals out of her.
She was Nazeer, Mansour, and lots of Skowronek. Love that sire!

The first stud to enter immediately ran to the other stallion and started fighting to the death. So they decided to sedate the tied stud. I believe it was something like 8 out of 10 horses mounted the stallion first. It seems they mount whatever has the least resistance. Lol

And yes, I agree with the poster who said give the bill to the stallion owner. It IS their responsibility to contain him and they are liable for all vet expenses.

^^^^^it's because of travel time, living in the sticks has some disadvantages, and nothing ever happens when the vets are in the area. So I learned over the years to do most of my own vet work, and my vet stocks me up on meds when I have to have him out. I can stitch, give shots, treat mild colic, and things like that.

^^Good to have those skills. I had a horse that would injure himself all the time. We got good at treating wounds.

Me too, the way I do stitches is after I clean the wound and get it to stop bleeding I super glue it first then stitch it, it's easier for me to do it that way makes cleaner edges and less scaring and the glue will kill the bacteria in the wound.

Shouldn't I be less concerned, though? Considering her age and the fact that she's never bred, isn't it nearly impossible for her to conceive/carry?
I would do an ultrasound at 14 to 16 days that will tell you if she is pregnant....if she isn't then you don't have to worry......if she is then I believe you can give her a shot which will abort......I do not believe it is expensive.
