So, you’ve decided to make the big step and add another four legged lawn mower to your family. But what now? What do you need to do to get your mare ready to carry your new foal?
The first thing to consider is whether a new foal is the best option for your family. Factors such as the cost of insemination, post-natal care of the foal and ongoing costs need to be seriously considered.
For more information about the costs of pregnancy and care of your new born foal, please contact your veterinarian.
Once you have decided to take the step to pregnancy, a thorough health check of your mare by a veterinarian is required. This will involve a general physical exam, as well as a reproductive exam.
