I have bred my mare twice this year and am having a problem with her catching. I just got this mare and she has had 4 previous foals and was not bred last year as it was getting late in the season. Of the 4 times she was bred (a combination of frozen and fresh) she caught first cycle 3 of the times and the 4th time took 2 tries. My vet has bred other mares via frozen semen for me and I have alway had excellent results. The first time I bred this mare this season was with fresh cooled semen and she had a 5.4cm follicle when we inseminated her. We also gave her a shot to speed up the ovulation at this time. The follicle look very irregular shaped and ready to ovulate any moment so I am sure she had within 12hrs but we did not check her. However there was no pregnancy from it. The semen also looked good in this case. The second time I bred her was with frozen semen and we bred her 5hrs post ovulation and then flushed her 5hrs after that. We also gave her ovuplant for the next couple of days. Semen was good and still no pregnancy. She is in heat again and we are going to try for the third time. It will be with frozen semen, anything we can try differently? I only have one dose left so using two doses isn't an option. We have always done it post ovulation with great success so I think it should be O.K. this way. I also had a question about this mare being in heat. Is is common for a mare in heat to have steady "drips" of milk? She is almost streaming milk at times and I have never seen this during a heat cycle. Could her hormones be a bit out and maybe this is why she isn't catching? Would love any thoughts on this. Thanks!
