    I'm sorry to hear that, ILS. I hope you can get something done soon. Best of luck.

    I don't know that there's much you can do about that; it's in a really hard spot to medicate, and anything you put on it, will be washed away when she urinates. Just sponge it off, and keep it cleaned up several times a day. If it's been more than 48 hours, it is going to be too late to stitch it, as the wound ends will have 'closed' off, and they won't grow/heal back together anyway.

    I hope you can move these horses very soon, as what would happen once your filly is mature enough to breed? You could have two mares getting bred 'unintentionally' at any time. Get them out of a facility that has stallions, or atleast get them into one in which the stallions are actually well maintained.

    I have no idea when this happened. Sometime within the last 5 days, so I am not sure about stitches. She will get them if she can. I should probably call the vet out just to take a look at her anyway. I'll do that tomorrow I do intend to find out when this happened when we go out there tomorrow, and what exactly happened.

    The New barn owners haven't called back yet so I guess we will just have to wait until tomorrow morning to call them...

    Foal
    I was boarding my mare and they put her in with a really agressive mare, without my knowledge. The other mare backed my mare into a corner where she caught her vulva area on a piece of wire sticking out. It was torn much worse that the photos you have and took many stitches to fix it. Needless to say I brought her home. I only had her there because they had an indoor arena.

    After it was stitched, we hosed it for about 20 minutes twice a day. My mare sure didn't like it but it healed nicely.

    The vet tied a knot in her tail and tied her tail with binder twine to her mane. It held the tail out of the way nice, I had never seen that before.

    We had a gelding kick a mare right in her girl parts once...foot went right up in. She ripped pretty consitant with what your mare did. She too had torn before which makes it easier to tear again. Get a vet...they stitched dani right up and she was just fine.

    No. Call the freaking vet. I am guessing they can tell you what to do with it until the vet gets there. But since it should be an emergency call (since stitches can not wait days) the wait should not be too much.

    Why do you ask us anyway? We give you good advice and you ignore it.

    Is there a good reason why your horse has not been moved yet? Before you claimed to be looking for another barn. You obviously have not followed thru on that.

    Do you wait until tomorrow for everything in life?

    The new barn owner...you will wait until tomorrow.... the vet... you will wait until tomorrow....

    There have been lots of tomorrows between when all those horrible things you claimed happened to your mare and now.

    Step up to the plate. Take care of your horse!

    Foal
    This is insane, is this an actual boarding facility that you have them at? Or just a private barn. Are the stallions seperated from the mares? Even so they shouldn't even have stallions around, or at least whoever owns them should pay the damages.

    You write because the mare is bred by a stallion at the facility, you write and are all upset because the BO are threatening to take the foal. You talk and talk that you are moving the mare but will wait until AFTER the foal is born, then say you are moving her within a month of foaling to prevent the barn owner from taking the foal. Then you send photos of your foal and her half sister, talk as if everything is peachy keen, send photos of growth. NEVER mentioning again about moving her. NOW, she gets bred again unplanned by one of three or four stallions, by accident and NOW you are boo hooing about moving again because the BO don't take care of the horse and mare, let stallions in with the mares, yadda yadda. Of course, you call the new barn owner, they don't answer, you say you are waiting until "tomorrow" to call them back to see about moving the mare and foal. You don't even check the horse daily, you show up after three or four days, see she is torn up, don't call the vet out, will wait until "tomorrow" then start your boo hooing again about the BO didn't call, the BO didn't let you know the mare was hurt, the BO didn't do this or that. You put a bad light on the BO, but sure seems as if you the OWNER of the mare and foal sure doesn't so your part in taking care of your own horses.. There are always two sides to every story, we hear your side. Maybe not all is truthful that comes from your posts.
    What if the stallion had KILLED the foal while loose and breeding your mare?
    I don't know the BO, I don't know the actual situation of the facility, but we only hear the parts of you telling us about "oh poor me, it happened again. Oh poor me, I might have to deal with ANOTHER unplanned foal"
    We all told you MONTHS ago to move the mare before the foal was born. Now it has happened again and you are still saying"we plan to move the mare and foal for sure now".
    Gee, if you had moved them right after the foal was born, this would not have happened again. Maybe you should take care of the mare and foal, and not worry so much about boo hooing to the forum where you don't listen to anyone anyway. Just give excuses.
    Its too late to suture the wound now, she should have had it done immediatelyy and been put on antibiotics when it happend, not DAYS later.

    Foal
    100% agree with whyominggrandma.

    I would have never had any mare of mine on the property that's for sure, unless they have a secure enough place for the stallions.. with all those hormones bouncing about, you were just asking for your mare to be bred, and again. I'm sure you can find another suitable affordable place WITHOUT studs around. Its called being responsible and doing whats right by your horse, even now you have your filly to think about as well.

    Truly wonderful post Wyominggrandma!

    But you forgot the BO kicked my mare until she screamed incident. Which to me is one of the biggest red flags of move now. If it is actually true.

    With how the OP acts I am guessing most of the drama is not true. She keeps her horse at a barn with a mixed herd and wants to be able to pretend that breeding her mare is not in her plan.

    At least that is what her actions say.
