I guess I'm still hanging onto hope...my older mare was checked by ultrasound 21 days after the last live cover (26 days after first cover). She was checked not in foal, said it felt like she had been pregnant, there was a 10mm follicle(?), and there was also fluid buildup or pocket(?). Does that sound like a typical loss? At best, how reliable are ultrasounds at this stage? The vet did not specialize in repro work.

My older mare did the same thing 2 years ago. Vet checked her not pregnant with fluid (I believe they call that endometritis, and it is pretty commin in older mares due to "delayed uterine clearance", it is treated somehow with Oxytocin, I know there is an article on it on this website under "articles"). She was cultured clean at that time, which was intersting, because he expected infection.
A 10 mm follicle is just a baby as follicles go. I would have her cultured when she comes back in (has she come back in yet?) just to make sure there is no infection. You definitely don't want to rebreed until you know the pathology of that fluid. I know they always recommend a cytology as well.
If she has not come back into heat, I would have her rechecked anyway, it would be relatively uncommon to miss a pregnancy at this stage, but a vet who is not a repro specialist may be more likely to miss one.
Best wishes, I am thinking happy baby thoughts for you.
