Ok, I was the one who tried to live cover my stallion and TB maiden mare. Everything WOULD have worked if she had squatted. He couldn't get the right angle with his penis and kept thrusting between her cheeks. We ended up just collecting him with the AV off the mare then AIing her.
I have a few issues. I think my vet should have tried to catch my mare sooner. I kept calling and calling and saying "She's READY" . So two days later she comes out and palpates her and goes...OH my that's BIG (folicle).
ANY way, IF the mare were to squat, do you think I might be better off letting them live cover a few days? The days she is in 'standing heat'?
If I were to stand the mare on a slight incline would that maybe help if she didn't squat?

Thanks everyone. :o)

Yes, having her a bit lower than he would do the trick. The next time, she may squat on her own.

Mary....Some stallions (especially young ones) may need a "pointer". If you have an extra person around while breeding he may need help aligning himself up. If he is between her cheeks, he may need someone to actually put him in the mare. It takes a few times and then they usually get the trick.

I would suggest that while helping the stallion, be careful not to grasp around the penis too firmly. Gently guide him in the direction that he needs to go. Try to let him contact the mare, then add the appropriate correction.

If he is between the cheeks, he needs to go up, or she needs to go down. Maybe both!
