Hi, I have a 17 year old mare who always takes well when bred live cover. I decided to have her AIed this year and have had a awful time getting her in foal. The pre-breeding work was done and all was fine. She had a # of US done over the time we were trying to get her in foal by 3 different Vets from the same clinic I use but the presence of a cyst was never mentioned or documented. The last breeding was perfect in timeing and Vet said all looked great. The vet who had US her numerous times and who did the insemination came to check her at 21 days and said she was not in foal but had a cyst. Can a cyst suddenly apear like that? My other question is if a Mare has never had trouble getting in foal and the results for infection come back negative should a Caslick's procedure be preformed at the time of insemination on this mare? Thanks

If this mare has been repeatedly ultrasounded this year as you indicate, and there have been no cysts noted prior to this one, it may be worth having the mare checked again - you just may be surprised to find that this cyst has developed a heartbeat...
