Hello,

I have a young healthy mare, whom I am breeding this year and is in the hands of a specialist. She did not catch the first two times using a full dose of semen at each breeding. On the third try, the vet decided to use the deep horn method, thereby only using one straw. He said the breeding went well, and the mare had ovulated two hours after breeding. The mare became quieter after that breeding which made the vet very optomistic. Upon checking her at 14 days, he saw no babies, and decided to put her on regumate and recheck in 2-3 days. He also drew blood, and her progesterone levels were at 3.7 which is very low if she had been pregnant. He rebred her two days ago, and put her on regumate at that time. I guess my question is, is this normal for a young healthy mare?, and will this always be a problem with her. What chances does she have conceiving with these issues??

I would suggest you read the article on progesterone supplementation in pregnancy on this web site. I think it will answer a lot of your questions!
