I have a mare that went into heat last Tuesday. Flaming heat on thursday. We bred her Live cover Thurs, Saturday, Monday, and then I thought she was going out of heat. Walked the stallion past her last night, and she was offering to him. So I bred her last night. I have never had a mare in heat this long. I am calling the vet today. It seems like she is not Ovulating? Is this unusal.???

Thanks

Some mares will do that. If this is unusual for her, then you may want to give her a shot of HCG to insure that she ovulates. I have used HCG with numerous mares and have never had any problems.

You should be aware that (depending to some extent upon your location - this is more likely to be seen the further north you are) this mare sounds as though she may still be in "transitional stage", which typically results in prolonged estrus - and which may be anovulatory, so don't be surprised if she's not pregnant in 14 days.....

"Tincture of time" is the great healer for transitional phase, and within 4 to 6 weeks, the mare will probably be displaying regular estrus (if you didn't get lucky and she's pregnant!)

For more information about transitional phase and manipulation of it's timing, please see the article on this web site available by "clicking" here

Thanks everyone. I do think she was in transitional She came out of heat this past Sunday for a total of 11 days. I did breed her for 3 days prior so I doubt we caught her but thanks for the articles and your input..
