Hello-
I have a mare who I will be breeding this year. She last foaled (To my knowledge) in 1990. In her life she has had 3 foals... As I know. She may have had more, but they are not on record. She passed a breeding soundness exam. What would you recommend to me on getting this mare in foal?

You do not mention the actual age of your mare, but I am assuming she is in her teens.

Some older mares have a greater tendency towards delayed uterine clearance and this can be treated by the use of oxytocin post-breeding. There is more information about that on this site by clicking here.

Other than that, as you have indicated that your mare has passed her BSE, there are really no other suggestions I can provide outside of normal good breeding practices which can be found in an article on this site here.

Good luck.

It sounds like its safe to breed her, you should go ahead. Your vets already OKed it!

I agree with everyone here, if the vet said she is breeding sound, then go ahead and breed her. I know sometimes with older mares and especially if it has been several years since their last foal are difficult to get back in foal. If she is in the teens (you didn't specify) then you may be a little frustrated and it maybe time consuming to get her in foal, but she will if you keep trying. On the other hand, she may get pregnant right away, it depends on the mare. All you can do is try.
