A few years ago, at the Arab Breeding farm where I worked, one of the young mares tore her uterine lining while foaling. I believe there was some blood and acting like colicking (i wasn't there for the delivery though) She had to be stalled and cleaned around there daily, she was hand walked like a week afterwards, and she was on a LOT of antibiotics and stuff. She was fine after a few weeks, and I believe was even deemed sound enough to be rebred, but her owner decided to not rebreed her for a few years, then get her rechecked to see if she was still okay. Granted, I was 13 and got left in charge of this mare and her colt (along with the 8 other mares and 1 stallion in the barn) for 4 days while the owner of the horses/barn was gone... Talk about a stressful time!! Especially hand walking a 4 yr old mare and her rambunctious colt... LOL it was an experience!!
Good thing I've always been responsible and a quick learner and been around horses since I was 5... still shouldnt have left me alone with the mare and foal right after she tore her uterus, but what can ya do?
Do you have a mare with a torn uterus?
