Had vet check a mare Saturday/ she had a 3.5mm follicle and some edema/she was a frozen semen mare that he called open at this time. i tried to tease her to the stallion Monday night but she refused/so sleeved her to see what was going on/ as soon as I touched her cervix she clamped it shut/ so called vet to inquire and he said to give her time/ rechecked her tonight to stallion and again she refused but not so adamantly/ sleeved her again and she was a little flacid so bred her BUT my concern is that on other occasions when I have bred her / her cervix was very soft and this time it wasnt///what are the possiblilites the vet actyually missed and pregnancy /would be about 17 days or so given the fact they are two days behind live or cooled(other wise 19 to 20 days) then if she was actyally pregnant did I just really screw things up by inseminating her???

I would have felt inclined to get another evaluation done before invading her uterus, especially as you were dealing with frozen semen, and as you say the conceptus diameter can lag behind in size by a couple of days, which with frozen semen is not abnormal.

The presence of a follicle means absolutely nothing in a pregnant mare. Some have them around 18-21 days, some don't. Either way it's not noteworthy. Some people get agitated and think it's a sign that there's a problem (so they put her on Regumate, which is less than desirable *duh* ), or that she's not pregnant - but it's not. The edema is more of a concern, but even then there will be a few pregnant mares that do develop a little edema around that time and it's of no consequence.

If she was pregnant, and you inseminated her, the chances of her being pregnant now are significantly diminished...

Can't really say more than that, as it takes looking at the mare to make a definitive call...
