I'm looking for suggestions in managing one of our mares this year. We really want to get a foal out of her, she's an exceptional mare. Any suggestions in managing this mare differently would be greatly appreciated.

Here's a brief history.

She's a shire mare (DOB 1995) that had two pregnancies (1999, 2002). She retained the placenta after foaling in 2002 (the vet arrived about 3 1/2 hours after she foaled, and she finally passed it about 7 hours post foaling).

She went to the breeders in 2004 (they did on farm AI), and didn't catch after 5 cycles (I hear your groans, I now realize I should've had the breeder stop breeding, but I trusted them because they were 'experienced'). She returned home (not pregnant) in June.

We had a biopsy done in Oct. 2004, and the vet said it came by a Category 1B (the details are below). On exam, the vet also noted that she has a 'convulted cervix and diverticulum'.

We bred her AI in 2005 (one dose), used the Oxytocin protocol, and put her on 21cc of Regumate starting on day 4 post ovulation (ovulation was confirmed via ultrasound). She was checked in foal with single pregnancy via ultrasound at 15 days, 30 days, 45 days, 90 days.

She lost the foal at 111 days, and she retained the placenta (we never found the foal, but the placenta was hanging out of her, the vet had to remove it, and flushed her). The placenta appeared normal. She's had 3 cultures/cytologies, all normal.

Here's her biopsy results:

Laboratory Findings/Diagnoses
Uterine Biopsy: Histologically normal endometrium, except for focal insignificant (mild) lymphocytic inflammation (Kenny category I)
Histopathology
Tissues examined: uterine biopsy (2 pieces, 5 sections)
Luminal epithelium was tall and columnar in type, normal and intact over the mucosa except for minor areas of mechanical artifactual disruption. Stratum compactum was infiltrated by a single small focus of lymphocytes in 1 of 5 sections. Stratum spongiosum was normal (no edema, inflammation, fibrosis, glandular nesting, dysplasia or metaplasia present)

Hello Barb. I would suggest you ask your question at one or both of the groups below. They both have equine repro vets on them and may get you the info you need.
