I am first time breeder. Planned to breed 20 yr old QH mare, previous foals 1998 and 1992. Knew I was taking a risk with trying to get her in foal, so I chose local stallion and checked her for breeding soundness. Everything looked great mare is in great condition besides being a touch overweight,(not much) just from lack of not being consistently worked over winter. I did not check her thyroid yet. Bred her live cover may 9, and 11. on the 13th she would not stand for stud again. Checked her ultrasound on may 31. Vet palpated and and made the comment "sure feels like she is pregnant", but then couldn't find anything on ultrasound. Vet couldn't confidently confirm ot deny pregnancy, and requested to ultrasound aqain in 3-4 days. Instead I brought to differant vet on june 5, ultrasound was done and he said she was not pregnant. She goes back to breeder and is given shot to induce estrus, but doesn't respond. Mare doesn't come into heat again until june 19. she stands for the stallion, he penetrates a few times, but won't ejaculate. they collect him and try to ai the mare. her cervix is tightly sealed. breeder is confused, it seems like mare may be pregnant, but she has been been checked twice. first vet wasn't confifent either way, second vet says maybe he missed it because it was done outside in the sun. What is going on? She will be rechecked june 28. am i dealing with a missed pregnancy or some hormone problem associated with an older mare? Why is her cervix sealed, why wouln't stallion ejaculate? This is a fertile experienced stallion. Note, she had a weird short heat cycle 2wks after being bred first time in may. We thought this was due to her being submissive in new turnout situation. Any suggesstion or similiar experiences?

She very well could be pregnant. When they tried to live cover what was her attitude? Maybe the stud knew better that is why he would not ejaculate.

I have a couple mares who are very closely related that will build a CL on both ovaries. If I don't catch them in the first two cycles of the year they "think" they are pregnant and will not come back in heat, even though they have breedable follicles. I have had limited success using hormones to manipulate their cycles, I have finally got two of them to come back in after a huge amout of estramate. However the most relable way to get them breed is just not to miss the first two cycles.

i don't know what her attitude was for second live cover, I wasn't there. How bizzare would it be that two differant vets missed a pregnancy between 18-25 days? Is that even possible? I know some vets are better than others, but it just seems so strange to me.
