I am the dumb husband.

looks like I gave our Mare her Regumate the day of and the day after she got her Estrogen shot????

My wife is really upset about it. She doesn't want to breed the mare at all now. From what I understand I gave her Progesterone and Estrogen at the same time? Anyone know if we can still breed the mare?

Why are you treating with both Regumate and estrogen? What is the aim? Your answer will allow us to possibly assist with an answer to your question.

I'm not sure why the each hormone specifically is used (I was administering the regumate so my wife wouldn't have to handle it) other than to regulate the mare's cycle so she has optimal chances of conceiving when bred.

My wife's intentions were to stop the Regumate the day I gave the Mare the Estrogen shot (yesterday).

So, I accidentally gave the mare her regumate yesterday along with the estrogen shot. And then gave her regumate again today. Today my wife noticed I gave her the regumate and said that because I accidentally gave the regumate on top of the estrogen that now the mare can't be bred.

I hope all that makes sense. I am just wondering if we can still breed the mare this cycle.

Are you sure it was estrogen? There would not be a logical reason for using estrogen in the manner you describe... There would however be a chance that the drug you were using was not estrogen but prostaglandin, which would make more sense.

If it was prostaglandin, then by now there's a good chance your mare is coming into estrus ("heat") anyway. If she is not, then you could still give the prostaglandin and she is likely to come into estrus. Note that Regumate is not the most reliable drug for inducing timely estrus anyway - you would have better success following the P&E protocol.

You might want to get your veterinarian to ultrasound the mare to see what is present on her ovaries - CL or follicle - prior to giving the prostaglandin (if that is what it is) and they will probably be able to give you a better idea of the timing of estrus and breeding as well.

Another thought... was the drug "Estrumate"? If so, that is a brand-name synthetic prostaglandin, not estrogen, but I could see the potential for confusion... :-)
