I got this history from the vet today. For some reason, the labs weren't included but I'll call Monday & ask them to be sent. I specifically asked for the results of the hormone assay. Oh well, I just called yesterday morning & got this already today so they moved very fast. I'll find out if a different vet attended her last year since this is all I received & would like to have last year's also.

This is for the mare who purportedly produces no progesterone. It seems a more likely possibility that she doesn't produce enough to sustain a pregnancy.

I'll be using a different (repro) vet. I'm not sure if the vet who attended her this year is a repro vet or not (can't remember). I know he's popular with many STB people around here.

I've never had to deal with a problem mare before but some of this seems to be a bit of overkill. Of course, I also haven't seen last year's history yet.

Any thoughts?

I'm waiting til next season & plan to breed her live cover since I'll be using my own stallion & feel it would help to improve her chances of conception. Actually, I'm inclined to pasture breed her. I'll put her under lights in November. I plan to tease as opposed to having her palped so often. My feeling is that the less opportunity for introducing foreign matter into her uterus, the better.

I was told this mare produces NO progesterone, which seems unlikely. It seems more likely that perhaps she doesn't produce enough to sustain a pregnancy. Once I get the hormone assay, I should (I hope;) ) know a bit more about that. Either way, progesterone can be supplemented & if that were to fail, the USTA allows ET. Quite a bit of money was put into this mare, trying to get her settled, but I'm not at all sure it was used in the most wise or efficient manner. jmo tho
(btw ~ This mare is a '95 model.)

Hi! would anyone like to tell me their thoughts about an 8 year old shetland mare I have . She has a troubled repro history. Last year she ultrasounded pregnant, but came up open in the spring, the former owner did not do any testing other than the ultrasound.Now I have her 88 days pregnant.At 30 days her progesterone tested well within normal range, according to my vet. We tested again at 82 days and the level came back at what my vet says is very, very high...25.5. She ultrasounded today with a normal scan, the fetus is viable and she pulled another blood sample . There was no indication of anything abnormal. What does anyone think about this progesterone level??? any suggestions on how to monitor this mare??? She has never foaled, always coming up empty, and I do not know exactly when or in what manner she was bred in the past ..other than last year..

I would not be concerned about the elevated progesterone level - at the stage of pregnancy you are talking about there are multiple CL's producing progesterone.

If she loses the pregnancy again, I would have an endometrial biopsy performed prior to breeding her again, as repeated loss between 60-100 days (or thereabouts) suggests issues related to the condition of the uterine lining (esp. endometrial fibrosis).
