we bred my mare early last august. She acted "pregnant", but was confirmed not in foal. I've tried to breed her 2x so far this season. It will be 15days since the last breeding next thursday. I'm sure she won't be in foal, though, since she has started to bag up and even drip milk. Had she conceived last year, she'd be due soon. I need to breed her this year and it's getting a little late in the season. Now for the question:
how do you think she's going to respond when it comes to to deliver the fake foal? can i breed her in the fake foal heat? is there anyway to induce fake labor?
anybody anybody Bueller?

How did you determine that the mare was not in foal, and at what stage? Some mares will display heat even though pregnant, and there are stages of pregnancy when accurate determination of status is difficult for various reasons.

If there were a true "phantom pregnancy", there are generally not heat cycles - indeed, the very absence of the heat cycles is one of the contributing factors for indication of the condition.

I'd maybe feel inclined to have her checked again before breeding again.

the vet does my breedings because i'm using shipped semen. She's been checked quite often. She's had at least 3 normal heat cycles this season. But she's really fat, bagging up and dripping a brownish yellowish substance from her teats. we use ultrasound to check her. The vet said her cervix is very tight, just barely enough room for him to get the little semen tube in. We tried P+E in june to try and get her hormones right. She's also started getting a little fluid in her uterus that we have to lavage. She's never did this last year. What do you think?
