We are having one of our mares palpated and possible ultrasound done on the 22nd of this month. The palpation cost $25 and the ultrasound is $30 so it's not as expensive as it may sound. I figured she would end up costing us more than the other horses combined turns out she is actually going to be the cheapiest on this vet bill.

You should speak with your vet about it, I was still in school when I went through this with my filly and my vet was happy to work out a payment plan, but I know that some vet's won't do that.

It's not MY rotational dewormer and I don't use it regularly..Although it is a good way to get a good start on a horse though, especially a young horse. I gave that as an example to Kayla so she could cover all of her bases. You don't have to agree with it but it is a very good option and a learning tool for a "beginner" horse person...It's a very good chart and gives good details and information on different wormers.

Kayla, definitely take all of this information up with your vet. He can tell you more and probably better ideas since he will personally be the one working with you and the filly.

OK. I'm seeing some real problems here. I may have missed something, but how did you come by this horse in the first place? Did you actually purchase her? Do you have other horses? Did you do your homework, so as to know that it constantly costs money, and usually a lot of it, to keep a horse? I did not know she had been kept with stallions, but asked if she might be in foal, because she looked like she might be, from the pictures. Much too late now for a shot to abort her.

I cannot imagine, anyone keeping a filly of her age, let alone her condition, with stallions or colts over about 4 months of age. I hope she is not with stallions/colts now.

And I agree with NdAppy. Horses do not absorb, they abort.

Not really, since you don't know what you are "starting" with. Horse may already have resistant strains. Best start would be vet. JMHO.

I have heard that horses absorb the follicles in an early pregnancy, then abort after a certain time period. That is worth some research.

Also, I have run colts in with fillies who were both young and never resulted in a pregnancy. I have heard of others who did however.

Featheredfeet, It's a very very long story that has been discussed in now 6 or 7 threads including this one..It always turns into a heated debate and the OP asked it not be brought up in this thread..Allison Finch closed the last thread and advised we move on and try to be a little more constructive instead of getting it going again...

You can read about it here but let's not bring it back to life..It's done..All we need to do now is give good advice and hope the OP takes it to heart..

Well we all have our opinion and I'm not going to argue with you..I don't know what you've gotten so upset with me about recently but it's DONE...I'm not going to keep getting in arguments with you. Okay?? Time to get over it.

It may very well be referred to as absorbing, but it is in no way physically possible for a mare (or any animal) to absorb a fetus.

This thread is as pointless as the last, this one should also be closed. You can't help someone who doesn't want to be helped. You can give advice that doesn't mean the OP is going to take it. Just my $.02.
