Caslicks are done for several reasons. Usually because of the anatomy of the mare .. bred or not. However, if she is bred, then those sutures need to come out prior to foaling (obviously). I would have her checked!
As soon as I can get her in a horse trailer, I will take her to the vet. Worked with her more last night, until it got dark, don't have much time after work before it gets dark, **** you day light savings time!. Dad brought his 4 horse stock trailer over. She would put one foot in it, then back up. Just going to take time and patience. I hope I have enough patience to see it through! Lol
I talked with my BF growing up, who is a vet in Oregon now. She told me there were other reasons that she could be sewed up.
ETA: isn't if funny the things we think of when we're in the bathroom! Lol
