No it's not too late for the shot to work and that would be the responsible thing to do...

Not if you want a cute foal which is obviously what the OP wants.

Are the sire and dam registered? Been shown or anything done with them? What is their breeding? Any genetic issues?

They are both registered. But my mare is a rescue and the papers were lost in the adoption. The stud is bred to the hilt! Ill havevto grab hip papers and show them on here. But they are both cutting / reigning bred. And like i said. I planned on breeding her this year. It just didnt happen as planned.

Have either of them been test for HYPP or HERDA?
themacpack and Rascaholic like this.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

You say your mare was an adoption from a rescue. All the rescues I know of have a no breeding stipulation, which means you aren't supposed to be breeding the mare at all, even though you said you were planning to in the future. I'm thinking maybe "fate" had a little help...

irresponsibility? Horses get out. It just so happened when my mare was in heat. Iv talked to the vet already. She is utd on everything and according to the vet there is no reason that I shouldnt keep the baby. Im a strong believer in fate and I definitely wouldnt call it irresponsible. Things happen. You can't keep a horse in a bubble.
Your kidding right? If you cant keep your horse or the stud in a pen we have a problem, No this isnt fate this is just plain stupid. Foals cost A LOT and if you are going to do it just so you have a "cute" foal, wake up. Do you have the experience to deal with a foal? And if your mare is pregnat is she getting the proper feed and everything else she needs?

Like stated above im pretty sure you are not suppose to breed a mare who comes from adoption.....

Yes, please post some photos of the possible parents! Could you contact the registry and have new papers sent to you? If she is pregnant, then you've already saved a bundle on stud fees. Not much more $$$ to shell out until it's born. Good luck, hopeit works out the way you want!

Oh yes, because the Vet visits to ensure the pregnancy goes correctly are free....

The extra food and care a pregnant horse needs is free....

Boarding facilities would never charge an additional fee to move the horse into a large and proper foaling stall and I'm sure they'll happily get up at all hours of the night to check on the mare for free....

Yup, not much more $$$ at all!!!

Breeding is not something that you just wing and hope for the best. Not only is the life of a foal at stake here, so is your mare's life. I was notified this week that my friend lost her mare due to a placental abruption. The mare had foaled previously with no issues but that didn't happen this time and she was dead within 10minutes, Vet never even had a chance to get in his truck. Now her extremely valuable mare is gone and she's struggling to bottle-feed a baby that never got to meet it's Mommy.

Are you prepared to lose your mare and perhaps the foal as well? Well, I suppose that would be *fate* too......

This would be my major concern!

Plus, because this accident happened in the first place, you may want to question just exactly how foal safe your fencing and property is.

Hope it all works out for the best!
