Hi there. I have an 18 y.o. TB mare that to the best of my knowledge has never been bred before this year. She was bred twice, the first time never showing pregnant, the second time, pregnant at 38(ish) days by U/S. She lost the foal at some point between that u/s and 12 weeks (confirmed by another u/s, well absorbed, no fluid). She had shown a heat cycle around day 75, which is why she was u/s at 12 weeks. I had changed vets for the second breeding. My first vet had biopsied her in April, all I was told is that she had "better uterine tissue than most younger mares". The new vet was really interested in the biopsy results, so I bugged the old vets office and they read to me "low grade chronic endometriosis, U of P category 2". I gave this to my new vet, and have not yet heard what this means. Would this have affected management of the mare while pregnant? Can endometriosis block the production of endometrial cups? Is it worthwhile to even try again next year, if so should I take extra procautions such as Regumate? Thank you for any insight. Trisha

Ok, this is me again. I have an inkling that she probably has endometritis, not endometriosis...I will have to verify that. Thanks. Trisha
