The 4 year old TB mare (Hope) I have is a bit wither high right now. She is still skinny, but IS putting weight on. (THANK goodness!).
When we tried to live cover my stallion (Lautrec) & Hope, EVERYthing was right. She was sweet and stood like a trooper (though didn't squat which the vet suspects is due to inexperience), and Lautrec was VERY well mannered. However, the vet said due to Hope narrowness & high front end, and not squating....it made Lautrec thrust between her legs. Before any of us got frustrated, we just collected him in the AV off of Hope and then AI'd her.
Any suggestions? Could it be from her not squating? Lautrec really seemed to be trying to 'hang on' for dear life.
Thanks everyone. :o)

Once she is covered by the stallion, she will most probably squat down for him.

I would suggest that you dig a slight depression in the ground, and stand Hope there. With her being a bit lower than he is, it will make penetration easier. I have done this many times and it has worked very well. It also helps the stallion remain on the mare longer, because he can lean on her better.

Thanks a BUNCH Kelly. :o)
Well, he DID cover her last time and she seemed to like what was going on, but didn't squat. And my poor guy was having a time hanging on to her. She's very narrow (track build) and I've been trying to plump her up. She's getting there. :o)
I will try the pot hole.

Thanks again! :o)
