I have a 12 year old mare (maiden) that I have been trying to get in foal the past two years. First was with shipped semen at an AI barn over 6 cycles, and this spring at the stallion owner (also a vet) over 3 cycles. The stallion owner called me the first time he inseminated her this year to ask if she had ever foaled before as she has adhesions or strictures over the vagina- perhaps remants of the hymen and had never seen those "cords" before. After giving up this year, I had her checked over with biopsy and a scope to get an idea of what the stallion owner was feeling, and there is what my vet calls a result of trauma, in the vagina, but no scarring of the cervix. He maintains she was not like that the year before and has no answers. She has not been exposed to a stallion, so no trauma except AI procedures!! Is there any possibility that she has always had these strictures that bleed during breeding that would cause an unhospitable environment for the conceptus to live? This has not been suggested, but as everything else looks fine to date, I am grasping here. The vets are not offering any suggestions. She has never been flushed after breeding or has had any oxytocin usage. ???

My vet has recommended removal of these adhesions this fall before attempting to breed this mare again. It would appear now that these cords perhaps "grow back". Should I have this done closer to breeding season than in the fall?

Mares can have adhesions form concurrently with endometritis problems. Often these adhesions can sucessfully be broken down manually while the mare is in heat. Breeding the mare after breaking down these adhesions is recommended although post breeding uterine lavages with DMSO may help prevent formation of new adhesions.

All the tests came back as clear and I am going to have the adhesions removed in October to try breeding again in the spring.
