Hello...I just purchased a 17 year old mare who has not had a foal since she was 7. I was told by her previous owner that she shows heat all year round. I know this may not mean anything. Her last breeding/pregnancy/foaling was uneventful and she took the first cover.
What should I do to help make sure this mare has all the "Ducks" in a row for optimum chances of conceiving? And if she has not been under lights beforehand..when can I guess that she might start to cycle again?
Thanks,
Dani

Her cycle kind of depends on where she lives. Her in Northern New England, my mare cycles March or April through October. She is significantly older than when she had her first foal, so make sure your vet does a thorough pre-breeding exam, including a culture and biopsy. Also assess whether she would need a caslick's (is her anus set further in than her vagina? Are her lips lightly open? This structure may need a stitch to stop bacteria, etc from being sucked in).
How early do you want to foal next year. This will make the difference between lights and/or short cycling her with Regumate, and allowing her body to just do it's thing.
Good luck!
Trisha

Trisha...Thanks for your advice. You were right in all of your advice! I had this mare Ultrasounded and checked by my vet today. She had decent size follicles in both ovaries...around 25(?) My vet said the mare was in the Transitional phase. I guess meaning she is NOT dormant and NOT in full cycle either. So she suggest putting her under lights if I want to get her cycling sooner than later. She also suggested using Regumate...might help speed up the process. She also had good breeding anatomy...not tipped at all and uterus was in good tone. And her cervix was closed tight. So...to sum it up I guess I just need to decide how early I want this foal. Thanks!

Good luck! I am trying again with my mare, with a little different management this time (now that I understand the process a little better). Wish me luck too!
