Problem Mare; Small Embryo

Postby 7simplechange » Tue Jul 10, 2018 9:59 am

Hello, looking for thoughts, advice appreciated.

Some background I'm trying to breed a 16year old maiden mare, we tried twice late last season, the first time she caught with twins but reabsorbed after we pinched one day 16, second time she also had an embryo but it failed to develop a heartbeat.

This year we've started late again due to the weather she didn't catch her first cycle, and on this cycle we bred with a double frozen dose (1 straw dose) vet said timing couldn't have been better, and she ovulated a second follicle 24 hours later. The vet checked her 12 days post breeding and saw no embryo, again checked 16 days later and a "very small" embryo was seen (size not specified to me). I've been told not to get my hopes up and they'll recheck day 20/21 to see if it's growing or receeding, regumate has been started.

I'm wondering if it's possible that this is a younger embryo than thought even though bred with frozen? If this embryo does not develop my vet wants to try with a fresh stallion thinking that will be successful, however I'm wondering if this is true since the mare doesn't seem to have trouble catching but keeping an embryo. Would surrogacy be a better option, or is it just a mare issue and not worth pursuing? Keeping my fingers crossed and wishing I could fast forward to day 20!

Just updating did a day 32 scan, embryo is still there but didn't see a heartbeat, we will double check day 35 to be sure but I'm assuming this pregnancy will also be lost.

Any advice or recommendations would be appreciated. We are looking into surrogacy, ICSI, using fresh, different protocols whatever helps at this point.

Thanks.
