Ovulation

Postby Kholden » Thu Jul 26, 2012 11:53 am

My mare was given a lutalyse injection by the vet after an ultrasound to bring her back into heat so we could AI. On Sunday she had a follicle of around 36 mm and she was starting to show signs of heat. Monday she was at 42. Semen was ordered and she was AI Ed on Tuesday with a follicle of 38.5 and then was ai'ed again on weds... Not sure of follicle size then...my vet has been doing this for years , but I was just wondering if my mare should have ovulated by now... I know that she is being ultrasounded today to check for ovulation. Any thoughts?

Was an ovulation promoter given at the time of or prior to to time of AI? If so she should have ovulated by now. If it was not given, then the fact that the follicular diameter was reduced on the day of the second AI is promising as long as it wasn't regressing.

It's a bad policy to start playing guessing games though. You'll drive yourself crazy doing that with horse breeding! You're getting the mare u/s today, so stick with what you get to see!! :-)
