I have a five year old mare that has had one foal. I served her with my two year old colt earlier this season, (his first mare). She didnt return in season so I had her preg tested by ultrasound at 35 days.
The vet said yes she is in foal, oh actually I dont think she is, that is a big follicle she should be in season right now I would be serving her today. I told him I had already teased he that morning and absolutely no way was she in season. I have teased her everyday since and we are now at 45 days and still no sign of being in season (and this mare is very accommodating when in season so I couldnt miss it). Where do I go from here, is pg an option or get another vet check done??

I would get another check done by a different vet. Perhaps one with more experience in the field.

Some mares will produce more follicles early on in the pregnancy. I agree with the above poster to get her checked again, but don't try to breed her! She's probably in foal.

UPDATE****
Had the mare re tested by a repro specialist she is in foal 60 days and which means she was definitly in foal when the other vet tested. Hmmmm wont be using that other vet again.

Lisa,

We breed about 10-15 mares a year and sometimes the vet (no matter how good they think they are) miss a pregnancy. We've had it happen at least 3 times in the past 4 years with two different vets. (one of whom assured me there was NO way to miss a pregnancy)

Good luck with your foal!
