i have recently brought a mare. she was, before i owned her, taken to stud and covered in early april. after a few scans twins were spotted and tthey were aborted around 45 days. previous owners were told she wouldnt cycle until next spring so turned her out with a yearling colt straight after saline infusion to abort twins in june. she ran with him until mid november when i brought her. her belly is growing and im not sure if she is just getting fat or wether she maybe in foal. i dont really know alot about breeding so thought id ask on her. the colt turned 1 in june. could she have cycled? and could he have covered her? im getting my vet out in the next few weeks routine vaccinations so will have her checked.

I am certainly not an expert (but there are plenty on this list). I do know however that the mare could very easily come into her cycle and a yearling stud colt can breed. I can't imagine why the previous owner told you she would not come into her cycle until spring. That is certainly not true. You are wise to to have her checked for pregnancy. If she is pregnant, please follow the advise of your vet (or the people on this list) as to her care.

ive spoken to her previous owner yesterday to ask her to explain why she had said she wouldnt cycle until next spring. she said her vet had told her that due to her having infusion to abort twins at 45 days she would have developed endometrial cups. apparently these would have prevented her cycling? she has also assured me that the colt showed no interest i n her the whole time they were together (june-mid nov). as im not at all experienced with breeding i dont know what to believe!

Yes, endometrial cups form at 35 days, and if a mare aborts beyond that point, she will not return directly to heats. BUT...They DO return around 120 days. So you would expect that around September the mare would have returned to "normal". Therefore, she would have had about 2 months with the "Uninterested" colt. I have known MANY colts that breed mares around 7-9 months old...and just because she didn't *see* any interest, doesnt' mean it wasn't there! I'd certainly have her checked if you're worried. However, on the other hand, even if she were just bred in Oct or November, you wouldn't notice her getting a prego belly at just 1 or 2 months. :-) Have her ultrasounded, so you'll know for sure!

is that 120 days after abortion or 120 after conception?

After the ovulation that resulted in the conception.

Have your mare checked.
