I was wondering how common it is for a mare to skip her foal heat?
We have a 12 yr old mare who has been a problem breeder, and is allergic to semen extender.

We finally bought our own stallion and figured we would breed her on foal heat. She foaled normally and we had her uterus infused 2 days after foaling, figuring we were going to finally get her bred back sooner this year.

But we teased her every day from 7 days on and finally took her to the vet for an ultrasound at 14 days. He said she had no intention of forming a follicle. The stallion was doing his job, as best he could, it looks like She got one up on us again!

I had one mare that had lost a baby the year prior, and would NOT come back into heat after she foaled. She would not show any signs, and would not respond to teasing. She was otherwise a normal mare for her other breedings. After the foal was weaned, all went back to normal for her.

She may be worried about the baby. Have a look in some previous postings, there is a lot of information and suggestions on how to easy her anxiety.

Thank You I will start seacrching the other postings.
This mare is not overly protective and usually such an easy breeder it
just had me perplexed. But she did lose her foal last spring also, so that would fit your mares pattern to a tee.

I appreciate your help:o)
