Ok. Next week is the week we inseminate my Trake mare.

We tried 3 times last year, uterine clearance problems, low progesterone, undiagnosed uterine infection...so on, and so on.

Here's the plan for this year.
1) Use teaser stallion before and after breeding.
2) Try to time with U/S so we only have to use 1 dose of semen for AI.
3) Put on oxytocin regimine for 48 hours following breeding.
4) Start Regumate on day 3.5.

She has a clean bill of health this year we have monitored with U/S three CL producing ovulations. Uterine edema during heat is good, uterine involution is excellent. She is not carrying any extra fluid in the uterus.

She looks great as well, she shedded out into the prettiest dapple black this spring. I'd say she's body score of 7.

How does the plan sound? Have I forgotten anything?

I wish a good "union"! My fingers are crossed for you. Keep us posted! It sounds like you have set the stage for everything to go your way. Good luck!

Sharon- good luck, I hope that in a few weeks you'll be pronounced successful! I'll know later this week if our first efforts were fruitful.

Well we inseminated this morning at 11:30, she had already ovulated.

Hopefully we only missed by a few hours and will be ok. She had a 3.7cm yesterday, and got busy overnight apparently.

Little panic, I thought we had decided to start Regumate on day 3.5, but she gave me a progesterone shot for day 8! Stupid of me, but I kind of froze. She's back tomorrow at 8am to see my other mare--I will corner her then.

Sigh. We're off like a herd of turtles!

...progesterone shot...????

If you do meant injectable progesterone, be aware that you will not be able to test the mare to determine her endogenous levels. Regumate is not progesterone, and therefore will not assay as such, but injectable progesterone is, and will.

Yes injectable progesterone, yes I know it will mask endogenous levels...part of my concern. I know Regumate is a synthetic.

I'm going to go over the mares history with her tomorrow, and let her know I'm ok with whatever testing we need to do so we aren't guessing. Hopefully we will get on the same page again.

She's ignoring the boys this morning, wants to go back with the other mare. Good sign I think.

Now we just have to wait until the 10/11th of May for U/S.
