Abortion Owner Factsheet

Abortion is the term used to describe the loss of a foetus before term, in the horse this means that the mare loses the foal before 300 days. After 300 days the loss of the foal tends to be termed still-birth, prematurity or dysmaturity. If the abortion occurs very early in the pregnancy (less than 100 days) there may be no signs that the mare has aborted, she may just come back into season.
