|Comment||Sandy, Thank you so much for your quick response. I have had horses for many years but have always dealt with geldings ONLY. She is actually pastured with 3 geldings now. This is my first experience with a mare and I am relieved to know that pregnancy is not an issue/stress that she will be faced with after just having her on the road to recovery... not to say that pregnancy is an illness... but her body doesn't need any more stress than it has already been through for a while! Thanks for sharing your knowledge with those of us who have a need to know!|
