I know this is late in the season, but a friend of mine came across this stallion with wonderful lines and wants to geld him soon. but put him out with her mares and offered me a breeding also before he is done. We do live in Fl. where it is warmer the mares are being very reseptive and he has been a pasture bred stallion in the past and a wonderful gentleman. My question is they have been in with him for 5 days and breeding regularly and still showing signs of exceptance. Does that mean they have not concieved yet. Help would greeatly be apreciated. Thank you!!!

No, it just means that they're still in season. They may not have even ovulated yet, or may just be still showing. (They usually do for a couple of days after ovulation.)
When they finish this cycle you won't know if they've conceived until you either preg test, (around 15 -17 days if you want to) or if they don't come back into season. Although this is no guarantee of pregnancy, it's 'usually' a good indication.

I don't know how your seasons work in the Northern Hemisphere, but down here the accepted 'breeding season' doesn't actually coincide too well with nature's timetable.
Good Luck!

Actually, repeatedly breeding in that manner may reduce the chances of conception in the event that the mare has any fertility issues. It is generally considered better to breed only evey other day during the time that the mare is receptive. Note also that the mare will probably get very resistant once she is no longer in heat, and risk of injury to the stallion is greatly increased.

As Lisa has correctly pointed out, your mares continued acceptance is not an indication of non-pregnancy, and you will not know until you have her checked by your veterinarian with an ultrasound at 15-17 days after she has stopped accepting the stallion.

Lisa: We're even worse off here than you are in Oz! Our "human" season starts around Feb 15th, with the "official birthday" being Jan 1st!
