My mare was bred last month via AI. She ovulated naturally before the semen arrived so we were not sure if we caught her in time. So we waited the 17 days, did the ultrasound, vets says no pregnancy. The mare has always been a 21 dayer from 1st day of heat to the next heat. We are on day 27 since last heat and our failed insemination and NO heat. Vet says there is nothing but grapes in there.
So I'm totally confused and rather sick of teasing the mare day after day in the rain. Anyone got any suggestions of past experiences.

Have her Ultrasounded...it is the only way to tell.

Get a different vet to u/s and go from there. If you know the history of your horse and it sounds like you do, getting a second oppinion is needed. My mare was announced not pregnant when she should have been 6 months along. Never did come into heat this spring and started to get pretty droopy in the belly. May 30 she had a beautiful buckskin colt!!! Sometimes a second opinion is needed!

My mare has cysts and on early ultra sounds it sometimes is hard to tell if it is pregnancy so we do ultra sound around 22+ days to detect a heartbeat. Good luck! Jan

She was ultrasounded on day 17 and day 19. We checked for cysts already on day 19 and there were none but still no heat. Vet will come out on Monday and check again. This will be day 31. At a complete loss!
