Hi there. I don't really know what to do with this one, so I am throwing up here. I have a 20 y.o. TB mare who foaled her first foal in April. We are trying to get the process going again for one more foal out of her and hit what I see as a road block. She was bred for the first time at 18, covered on 2 cycles live cover. 2nd breeding produced an embryo which measured small according to the vet, and ended up in loss of pregnancy. Took on first try last year when she was 19(different stallion this time also live cover), and had an easy pregnancy, foaling my filly.
About 3 weeks ago the vet was out to palp her to attempt to rebreed, this time AI. She had a 35-40 mm follicle on the right that was just starting to soften, and "multiple small follicles on the left". Unfortunately we were not able to get the semen, so we waited for her next cycle.
This time a different vet palped and ultrasounded her. He said today that she has an anovulatory left follicle, gave her a shot of prostaglandin and said he would come back on Friday to check her. The vet with the stallion is requesting 2 days notice before insemination is necessary. She was actually bred on prostaglandin when she conceived my filly, and she came into heat exactly 3 days after the shot, and was covered on the 2nd and 4th day. The vet was made aware of this and still felt that Friday would be the day to check her. Does this make sense to any of you out there? I don't know how long prostaglandin takes, and will it work on an anovulatory follicle? Where she ovulated on the right last time, wouldn't she be ovulating on the left this time? I am just confused and looking for direction.
thanks.

Oops...it is a non-ovulatory left ovary, is that the same thing?

Well, vet came out yesterday...her non-ovulatory left follicle had a 27 mm follicle on it! I know things can change between now and ovulation, and she could blow one on the right, but it was exciting none the less. We are getting prepared to inseminate early next week.
