AAEP: Breeding Season is Near


Need a checklist to help you prepare for the upcoming breeding season? theHorse.com and the American Association of Equine Practitioners have provided one, and you can find it on the AAEP website.

As the weather gets colder in the southern part of the United States and in the more northern reaches, mare and stallion owners might be gearing up for the breeding season. To help you make preparations for the upcoming breeding season, we’ll take a look at two populations of mares -- those that are currently pregnant and those that are maiden or barren -- and we’ll approach a stallion’s needs for breeding season preparation, too. 

The article covers artificial light, health care, reproductive soundness exam, and healthy body weight for the mare.
