We bought a very nice TB brood mare she is 15 and was given 2 years off before we bought her. She was check clean before starting to breed this spring. Had her checked today and she is still open. Vet said that she should be bred this weekend so now I am trying to get hold of stallion owner who we got the mare from. Should we be looking for a reason for her not settling yet? We are new to breeding and are not sure if it is normal to have to breed 3 or more times a year before a mare settles. This will be her 3rd breeding this year.
thanks for any advice Amanda

We look for potential problems before we even breed (breeding soundness and pre-breeding evaluations) and definitely by the third cycle I would be wanting to know what was going on...

What did "clean check" comprise of? What evaluations have been done? Does the stallion have proven fertility? How was the breeding managed?

Ask questions all around! :-)
