When to un-caslick

Hey all,
I have an old girl who is due to foal in Nov, she had been caslicked when I got her but I was told by the vet that because she has a very long umm she could still be served naturally.

I haven't had much to do with caslicks and I was wondering when I should have it opened eg how long before she is due to foal.

Any suggestions are welcome.

I would ask your vet. You may get different answers from different people.

I think that is the way I'm heading as no body seems brave enough to answer. I just thought I'd give it a go here first. :)

For those who may want to know, the answer I got from my vet is no later than a month prior in case they foal early.

Thanks for the info. I've never had a mare caslicked, so I didn't know for sure.

I would say 2 weeks before her due date, just incase she foals early.

I think a month prior is what we've done for our mares in the past.
Considering they can go 20 days before/after their duedate and be healthy, a month seems like a safe place to go.

Thanks all, I've been pretty much sitting on the month time frame. As I don't know specifics of her foaling history, I think a month is a safe bet. There are a lot of people very interested in what she produces due to her bloodlines so I really want minimal potential problems, that's for sure, but I guess every breeder is like that
