    Right...everyone...a vet is going to come out. But before I paid the high cost of the farm call, minutes he is here, and the cost of checking her to be in foal or not, I just wanted to know if it was possible for lymes disease horses to produce. But I guess I got my question answered. Thanks! And by the way...I am set up for a foal at our ranch so if she is or isn't in foal, I am not someone who is completely not knowledgeable about mares and foals. We have had 2 foals born at our place with the VET involved. We also have big stalls in a heated barn with 4 different foal safe paddocks.

    Thank you!! And that's awesome!! I don't want an argument or to be talked down too. I know I need a vet but just wanted to be sure a horse with lymes disease could even produce. I will have her checked and put on the correct diet she needs when I need too.

I got her checked again (even though my vet didn't think it was necessary) and viola, this time she is pregnant! The vet got a big grin on his face and said "I'm glad we checked your mare again." So it definitely happens. For real. The chances are actually pretty good.

    Next question....in your opinion what is the best and safest way to check if the mare is in foal. The last two foals we had, the mares were bred before we bought them and got a surprise with the first one because she was not supposed to be in foal and the second one was already confirmed in foal so never had her checked in foal again. I know ultrasound is the way to go but what if the vet doesn't have one. What do you guys recommend for checking the mare in foal

    Lol I wish you had just asked that so bluntly in the first place! Yes, it is possible. He health makes it less likely, but it is still possible, which is why we were confused. I'm sure you will be fine if she is in foal, I just got the impression you wanted us to figure it out via internet and wait and see :P

    Please update us! I saw you started a "foaling thread" (of sorts), I will be sure to keep an eye on it! The mare's a cutie!

    At 4 months, I wouldn't bother with the US. Just have him palp her, he shouldn't be able to miss it by this time and it will save you the cost of the US.

    I talked to her previous owner and they said that she and the stud bred many times in the 3 weeks they were together. But thank you everyone. I'll be posting updates on my mare and possible foal on the other thread! Thanks for the advice!

    Lyme disease does not impact reproductive health. It affects kidney function at advanced stages. It shows with shifting leg lameness. Lyme in horses is actually really difficult to treat and diagnose. A lot of horses end up with high lyme titers but are asymptomatic. Much like how dogs will be treated for lyme and be asymptomatic but will show up positive on subsequent tests.

    Best way to check if she is pregnant is an ultrasound. This would be done rectally and the mare if a maiden may need to be tranquilized for it.

    Ok...yeah this stud had problems walking. He still got around and could walk and trot but there was a difference in the way he moved.
