I just got the 'bad news' on Friday. My mare is NOT in foal. It's only the second time we've bred her this year. But, I have been through so much! [She has had the worst of it though] I had terrible vets the first time--had to ship two shipments of fresh in, only to have them 'mess it up'. And, then since it was so late in the season, the stallion owner had to send frozen. I feel something went wrong. But, need advice from the 'more experienced'. She was bred around midnight, and the vet feels she ovulated around 3:30am. They had been watching her--checking every 4-hours. I went in on Friday, at day 16, and they ultra sounded, and found no sign of foal. They said there 'was a presence of a cl'. But, no foal. Any suggestions? Any advice? My husband has 'had enough' this year, and won't agree to 'try again', and I think my mare's also had enough! I just don't know what to think. Do it again next year, or give up. The vets say she's in good breeding health. Don't see any problems. But, if not, then what happened?

Even if your mare ovulated at the right time with the semen at the right place there are no guarentees. Typically, you have about a 60-70% chance of it working on the first go. I have a few friends that have golden horse-shoes shoved up their butts when it comes to breeding... never missed on the first try, frozen or shipped! Whereas I have been closer to the average. For me the worst ones are those that start off pregnant but end up open after 3-6 weeks. The decision you take is your's alone, but you have to decide WHY you want to breed your mare and how badly do you want to do it.

For me breeding top calibre jumping and dressage horses is a hobby, including training and showing them. I don't breed them for profit, but on the other hand, I generally get a superior product for much less than the asking price of an up and coming grand-prix horse.
