A repro vet in the area called for semen of one of the welsh stallions I collect for a breeding farm. I collected and prepared the semen as usual, vet came by farm, picked it up went directly to vet hospital and insemenated the mare (hospital only 2 minutes away). Mare ovulates as planned, she had been scanned several times through her heat cycle, semen was checked and looked great according to the area "Repro.God" Didn't catch, repeat all I typed above, didn't catch. Changed to another welsh stallion, repeat all I typed above but this time she caught.

"Repro.God" said the mare was not compatible with the first stallion's semen. Semen was great, mare cooperated, it just was not compatible.

Has anyone ever heard of this, this is a first for me. I find it very odd.

I would hesitate to make that presumption based only on two failed breedings, but yes, there is a condition where a mare develops antisperm antibodies against a particular stallion's sperm, and therefore will not get pregnant by him, but can by another. It is not clearly understood why this sometimes happens, and it is rare, but it does happen.
