This is my second try at breeding. Bred mare first time everything went smooth (AI cooled semen). Pregnancy checked at 21 days, no pregnancy and 46mm follicle ready to rebred on but could not get semen quick enough. I waited 13days then gave 2 1/2cc heat shock to bring her back in. I took her to vet 5 days later and she ultrasounded with a 34mm follicle and had swirls in uterus (vet said indication of heat cycle starting) . Left her at vet, they rechecked her today (2 days later) follicle has not progressed. Is that normal? How do I know if she is in heat and will progress? I have no boys to tease with. Last time we short cycled her and progressed from a 35 to a 46 in 6 days. This time is has already been 7days with no progression. I am getting very frustrated. The longer she is at the vet the more money it is costing me. Maybe the heat shock did not work. How will I know?

What is "heat shock"? I'm not familiar with the product, and therefore cannot comment on your questions without more information.

Heat Shock is Lutalyse. Sorry! Turn-in's out she is progressing. The new young vet ultrasounded the wrong follicle. She had a 2.5 cm on the left ovary and a 3.4cm on right on Monday. Wednesday, she progressed to a 4.0cm on the right and a 3.4cm on the left. The younger vet only looked at one side(the wrong-side). Urgg! Thankfully since I questioned it the senior vet rechecked. Poor mare :-( Word to the wise. Always question if something does not make since. Very hard for me to question vets, I always want to assume they are on top of things.
