Breeding Mare

I have just had our welsh mare served and she is running with a gelding. I have been told she may dissolve the foal running with a gelding, is this the case.

Re: Breeding Mare

Hello Brenda,

I sincerely doubt that the foal's viability would be jeopardized by having a gelding near your pregnant mare.

However, to relieve your mind, it would be best to consult with your veterinarian.

All the best,
