I have a mare who is due anyday now. She is 341 days as of today April 23,2006. We would like to breed her back on the heat cycle. I don't remember how long after she foals does she come back in. I want to have another April foal. I was not going to breed after heat cycle, but she has not foaled yet. I want to have another foal before May next year. Also how long are the mares in the foal heat cycle. I will be taking her to a stud farm with the young foal.What is the best way to get a young foal in a trailer, this will be are first time to send her somewhere else? Also when will she come back in after the heat cycle in case we can't her to the breed then?
Thanks MELISSA

Hi, I also have a couple questions to ask the knowledgable, experienced ones. My mare lost a foal on 4/17/06 full term, placenta detached during the foaling. I am going to breed back to the same stallion, although this time it will need to be AI due to his showing career. My vet is suggesting catching her at the 30 day mark from her foal date. Does anybody have experience breeding at that time? and success? That will be around May 14-15th. Thanks for all of your help.}

They usually come into foal heat 7-10 days after foaling (Ruby came in at 6 days post foaling), then about 30 days after foaling. Either way, you need a good recovery of tone in the uterus before breeding back.

For the mare I've heard that it is much better to wait for the 30 day heat.

I do AI only so I can't say about the foal at stud farm. Good luck!

We've transported very young colts for medical reasons and they normally just follow mama in to the rig if there is enough room for the two of them to move fairly freely and mom loads up nicely. A but rope can work wonders. We use an alumni stock trailer with wide conparments so there is room for baby to lay down and not get steped on by mama.

Hello,
I sent my mare Annie with her filly to the stud farm last thurs night. The farm breed her thurs night and Sat afternoon. The farm also breed her Sunday, because the helper grandfather died. I wanted to know do you think we got her breed with just those breeding? My husband is going to go try to help breed her today. The foal is 12 days old now.Annie foaled May 3, 2006. Annie when in foal heat on May 11, 2006. The filly had upset stomach on Sat. Do you all think my mare is breed or should we try a few more times?
HERE IS A FEW PICTURES OF THE STUD.

melissa,
alot of times a foal heat is shorter than a reg heat. our mares foal heats are three-4 days long at max. while most of them only 2-3 days. Ovulation occurs at the end of the cycle.

Nice looking fellow!
Kim
