it could also be she was very green broke, then put out after breeding to wait until the foal was born, now the previous owner said he has gotten
on her, but did he hit the dirt too.

is the foal still on her (nursing) if not how long ago was the foal weaned?
alot of questions need answered before giving any logical advice.
