This year I learned a valuable lesson.I will never buy another mare as bred without a vet check. (Nice mare, rides well,and I would like to keep her for a trail horse at this point.)
My vet ultrasounded and found adhiesions between her left ovary and uterus, clean culture. Tried to breed her several times this summer without success.
I have a 3-year-old Grandson of Poco Tivio which I want to put some training into before he gets any breeding experience. Her coming into heat all the time keeps them both upset, and is just inconvenient. Other than spaying her, is there any to keep her from coming into heat?
By the way, They would not take her back, but gave us the cost of their breeding fee plus two hundred dollars for "loss of foal".

Yve

What do you mean by"in heat all the time"? Do you mean mean she just goes through her 30 day cycles?

Aside from that stallions need to be taught that the only place to exhibit breeding behavior is in the breeding shed...

What is going to happen when you take your stallion to a show... which inevitably will have one if not several mares in heat around?

Yoy need to let your young stallion know that certain behavior will not be tolerated.. while you can spay your mare to solve the current situation ultimately this will not solve the problem in the long run...for your stallion that is.

As far as anything that will permemantly keep a mare from cycling other than spaying I do not think it is possible..

You could use regumate but this is only a short term solution and I am not certain how long a mare can and should remain on it..without other adverse effects coming into play.

Elizabeth, Thanks, Yes she is just cycling normally, no, she is not in constant heat. I have little experience with studs, and the only previous one that I have owned was already a well trained gentleman when we got him. Can you suggest a good book on stallion behavior? I know that sending him to the trainer will help, but I have a lot to learn, too.

Yve there are a couple of good books

1. Understanding the Stallion by Dr Ed Squires
2. THe Stallion A breeder's Guide for Owners and
Handlers by James P McCall

The first book I have read and found it informative and helpfull the second I am looking for but have heard it is good.

Good luck with your guy
