Its not that she is 11 and has no issues NOW. We are talking about emergency issues that come up.
For heaves sake, can you predict if she is going to slip on the ice while she is really pregnant? Can you predict if she is going to abort the foal? Can you predict if she is going to colic and need emergency colic surgery?
These are all things that NO ONE can know. And these are things that you should be prepared for.
Also are you prepared that she might be pregnant with twins and need to have one pinched off? That is not cheap. And it is very rare for a mare to carry twins to term and deliver them both safely. Which is why you pinch one off.
