I am breeding a young maiden mare. On the third and fourth breeding day, there was a slightly bloody discharge immediately after breeding. I have not had this happen before. Should I be concerned? A request was made that she be bred every day, being a maiden. She has been bred 4 successive days. Should I give her tomorrow "off" due to this discharge?
"over" breeding will cause inflamation, inflamation is caused by iritation.Inflamation and iritation can cause a bit of bleeding. It does not matter to us if the mare is maiden or not , we still will not breed every day unless we are catching her at what we feel is the very end of a cycle and would consider breeding her the last two days in a row. Otherwise we still go every other day, normally the semen is good and will last in the body long enough to do a every other day breeding. Do you have any idea of the mares cycle? Was she checked to see the size of the folicle? What day of her cycle are you on ? If you started at the beginning of her cycle you still could have a couple more days to breed, so skipping a day in my opinioun would be ok and probabally good for the mare, you also don't want to make her to the point that she is experiencing pain, you may create a breeding problem for a maiden mare, and thats not good-especially if for a maiden mare she has behaved well so far for the stallion. Good luck Kim
