Problem mare has two large follicles for over 2 weeks

Postby Dutchy19 » Wed Apr 08, 2015 1:01 pm

Hello. Looking for some help with a mare. We have been trying to get her bred for over 5 years and only once did she catch but lost it within 30 days. Currently she has had two large follicles on the same ovary for over 2 weeks. She does not show heat and she never has. Her uterus looks like it might have bad tone and I intend to flush her when it comes time to AI. What can I do to get her to cycle normally? Hormones? Or is she still transitioning and I need to be patient?

  • If a prior ovulation has not been confirmed, it is quite possible that the mare is still transitional.
  • If there is no presence of uterine edema, then these could be diestrus follicles (mares can develop follicles during diestrus, which usually regress).
  • You might want to try 10 days of Regumate, with a dose of prostaglandin on day 10 (or 1/10th doses on day 9 and 10 to avoid the unpleasant side-effects for the mare). This may also help if she is still transitional.
  • If she has had a prior ovulation this year (i.e. is not transitional) then P&E may be helpful, particularly as she is a "silent mare". Do not use it however if she has not yet ovulated this year.
We're always happy to try and help, but don't forget to check the articles section
of the website too, which has a search engine to help you look for answers!
