Yes.. lol.

If the anatomy of the horse (and seems to happen alot with TBs - and frequently with really skinny horses) is such that the anus is "sunk in" and the vaginal opening is underneath and at such an angle that when the horse poops, it consistantly gets into the vagina and can cause problems .. pg or not.

A mare can do most anything with Caslicks in place EXCEPT natural cover and foaling... would be a bad deal either way.

If she has no udder development, then there shouldn't be an urgency, but I would have to know. I'm not really sure how they would be able to tell, unless they removed the sutures and palpated .. hmmmmmmmm.

No udder development, that's why I haven't called to get the vet to come to my house. I'll wait and take her there, cheaper for me, and she's not in any distress or danger.

That's what I did last night... Got one foot in. She was seeing if she can get all 4 feet in one square foot spot. she succeeded

Friday afternoon when I'm off. Going to put the trailer in the arena, put a bucket of grain in there, and sit and wait.

There was a horrible stable fire in Ft Worth yesterday. My friend who works for the Humane Society of North Texas responded. 12 horses died, there, 8 survived. Every horse was blanketed...it was over 70 degrees yesterday, every stable door was paddle locked. Fireman couldn't get the horses out because of the locks, and having to cut them off. HSNT took a badly burned mare and filly to their facility, the mare died this am about 4:30, Filly is still alive, she posted pics of filly, all of her mane is gone, hair singed. Horrible sight!

I'm sure there are reasons for the locks, but not living in the "big city" I would think just locking the gates would be sufficient.

Why would you have blankets on a horse in this warm weather?
Just riding in 70* weather my stallion was sweating this weekend.
Just tragic that so many horses perished. Hopefully the filly will be ok. Shalom
