I have a mare in transitional heat. I was wondering what the longest you have had a mare in transitional heat is, and how often the mare ended up getting pregnant on this heat cycle.

I have had 2 mares that were in transitional heat, one for 30 days and one for 37 days. Because our stallion was not particularly busy at that point in time, we simply bred them like any other mare, : every other day until they went out of season. This is not really a good option if you are sending your mare out to be bred or if your own stallion is being used frequently. Your best bet is to have her ultrasounded by a good vet who can determine follicle size, and advise you on the best breeding time during her cycle.
My mare was in heat for 20 days she was bred and had twins two close to pinch off so we aborted and rebred in 7 days with a normal cycle.
