I sold a mare to lady, and she has been confirmed in foal, but with low enough Progesterone levels that they have her on Regumate for the forseeable future to try and maintain the pregnancy.
This mare had 3 foals before I got her, and 3 foals with me, and at no time did we ever need to put her on Regumate to maintain the pregnancies.
Are low progesterone levels now something that will stay with her for the rest of her life for ALL pregnancies? Is there any correlation between getting in foal this late in the season and lower progesterone levels?
or - is this just "one of those things" for this pregnancy only, and the remainder of her breeding years could very well be Regumate free (she is a 1990 mare - so not ancient by any means)
Thanks for any/all input
