Foal
As far as rain rot goes, try an iodine based shampoo . . .

So far the AQHA lists no HERDA info on registration papers . . .

They do have notations for HYPP

She might be in foal, we aren't positive and I think the stallion has Doc Bar bloodlines as well. I can't remember, but if she does foal I will be getting the stallion's pedigree so I can register the foal, then I will know his bloodlines, all I was told was he was registered.

I have a friend who owns an afflicted HERDA paint mare. Don't think for a second that the AQHA or APHA are doing anything to protect the horses and owners in their assoiations by even admitting that HERDA is a problem in their gene pool. They do not require any testing of breeding stock and if you do test, your results will not be included on the papers (unlike HYPP that mandate it for AQHA registration). They appear to more intested in protecting the legacy of certain stallions than protecting the future generations.

The good news is your mare isn't afflicted. If she were, she most likely wouldn't be alive or she would have disfiguring scaring over her back that there would be no question as to her status. Doc O'Lena is one of the very few named known carriers so since she is double bred DO, she very likely could be a carrier. That would be important if she were ever bred. If she is a carrier, if you choose a non carrier, she cannot produce an afflicted foal but will produce another carrier 50% of the time. There is also another potential carrier, Bueno Chex, on the top side. UC Davis does the hair test for $40.

If your beautiful sweet mare might be with foal to be certain your Vet can palpate her or better yet do an ultra sound to see if there is a fetus there in one of the "horns" of her uterus.

I know, the vet is coming out tomorrow to check her over. I don't want to stress the girl out with a palpation or ultrasound, I may see if the vet can hear a heartbeat or something. Though I've noticed definite kicks on the side of her stomach.

She won't even feel an ultrasound and a palpation is not a big stressful thing for a horse either. Just get it done so that you know an approximate date and can plan accordingly.

I have a reason for not wanting to palpate or ultrasound her, I'll show a picture tomorrow and I think some will agree with my reasoning. Though yes, I wish I could get a palpation done, though who knows what the vet will want to do tomorrow.

Thank you, like I said earlier, she is a sweet heart and I don't how she was abused with how sweet and loving she is. She follows me around like a lost puppy...

Tomorrow we will have her on the right track vet wise, kind of antipating how she will act with the vet.
