Last season I bred my mare 3x AI, no pregnancy. I had a uterine biopsy done and the result was a class 2b. The vet recommended trying again this season with some added measures to assist her to conceive. Even with assistance, we only have a 10-50% chance of success. If we succeed in getting her bred, then she has an increased risk of losing the pregnancy in the first 60 days. How traumatic is a loss of pregnancy at that early stage? Also, does anyone have an opinion, or experience with the long term health risks for the mare? My vet says if she keeps the pregnancy through 60 days it should be clear sailing and there should be no effect on delivery. I just love this mare so much. I need lots of reassurance before I even attempt something that could be dangerous to her. Any help would be appreciated.

Well, my mare was a 2a, and we had problems with her one year, but last year she caught on the first try. I did give her Regumate as well as a caslick's procedure (she is "tipped"). She was bred twice the first year, the first time, she may or may not have conceived, she just had a long cycle (4-5 weeeks between heat). She was rebred live cover as soon as she came back in and had 2 ultrasounds, the second at about 40 days. I saw the heartbeat and everything. By 84 days she showed another heat cycle, and the vet palped her and said she had lost the pregnancy. There were no external signs that she had lost it that I could tell. She was not lethargic, and it didn't seem to alter her personality or emotions. I bred my mare because she has the best personality and I think she is just fabulous (then again, doesn't every owner think their baby is fabulous?). Talk to your vet about what would be necessary for her to carry (Regumate, oxytocin to help with delayed uterine clearance, etc). If you really want it, don't give up on her. The best advice I got was to be patient with my mare, and now we are just a few days away from her due date.
Good Luck!

Thanks so much for the input. My reasons for breeding are the same - love my mare so much. I have never had a horse so sensible and smart. (bias? who knows!) Good luck with your baby.
