When to un-caslick
I have an old girl who is due to foal in Nov, she had been caslicked when I got her but I was told by the vet that because she has a very long umm :oops: she could still be served naturally.
I haven't had much to do with caslicks and I was wondering when I should have it opened eg how long before she is due to foal.
Any suggestions are welcome. :D
I would ask your vet. You may get different answers from different people.
I think that is the way I'm heading as no body seems brave enough to answer. I just thought I'd give it a go here first. :)
For those who may want to know, the answer I got from my vet is no later than a month prior in case they foal early.
Thanks for the info. I've never had a mare caslicked, so I didn't know for sure.
i would say 2 weeks before her due date, just incase she foals early.
i think a month prior is what we've done for our mares in the past.
considering they can go 20 days before/after their duedate and be healthy, a month seems like a safe place to go.
Thanks all, I've been pretty much sitting on the month time frame. As I don't know specifics of her foaling history, I think a month is a safe bet. There are a lot of people very interested in what she produces due to her bloodlines so I really want minimal potential problems, that's for sure, but I guess every breeder is like that :D
