I have been doing inseminations for about three years now on several mares a year. Today, for the first time, after inseminating a mare some of the semen came back out with a reddish bloody cast. This is not a maiden mare (has had two foals). When inserting the insemination tube, I did try to push it in a bit further and felt a slight resistance. I did not push hard, very gently, and stopped when I felt the resistence. Could the tube scraped the mare inside? Again, it was very slight pressure, definately not pushing in hard.

How likely is the blood to affect the breeding and reduce the risk of pregnancy?

There should not be any blood present as a result of AI, although I suppose it is conceivable that a scrape could have occured, although as the ends of the pipettes are for the most part rounded this is unlikely.

Blood does have a negative impact on sperm, so it could reduce liklehood of pregnancy, but that would depend to some extent on how much blood there was, and how much made it's way into the uterus with the semen.
