We have 2 mares in for breeding. (not only has this never happened to me, now it's twice in the same week!). One mare will absolutly not stand still. When the stallion gets close to her, she takes off running. We have tried a little tranq. and tieing her front leg up so she can't run, so instead she reared straight up then took off. The other mare will let the stallion smell her and once he rears to get on her, she lets them fly! I need new hobbling ideas or how to get these mares standing to be bred! Both are obviously maiden mares.

Angela- I had my first mare, that refused to stand this year too. We now believe that besides being a maiden mare, vaginal tumors are to blame.

I would suggest aggressive teasing with a teasing stallion directly before presenting the mares for breeding. My teaser can reach over the fence and touch their back. He can not get over the fence, but they get used to seeing him raise up in the effort to touch them. This really helps maiden mares to expect the mounting from behind them. Once they will stand and accept the teaser, it makes everything much easier.

It will help to use a breeding hobble or a side line which inhibits movement from the hind legs.I will also use up to 2ccs of a mixed tranqulizer to take the edge off. I will suggest that you tease them at least once while tranquilzed, so they are familiar with that experience as well. After they catch on, less can be used each time. Maiden mares can be difficult, but with a little preparation, it can be made workable.

Good luck and be safe.

Also, have you had them ultrasounded? It would be good to make sure there is no medical reason responsble.

Yes they both had ultrasounds, cultures and biopsies before coming to my farm. Thanks for all the tips. I may also try a breeding wall.
