Does anyone have any info on this occurance?
I have a 7 year old mare who on two previous occasions was successfully inseminated using AI on the first try.
This time didn't go so well. A second vet came on insemination day, ultrasounded her and thought she looked good for both straws. He just happened by Monday while I was at work (no apt!) and my husband--bless his heart--helped him ultrasound her. First time ever we have had a mare checked at 2 and a half days! This vet stated we need to order a new shipment that day and that she had two good follicles. We had to settle for overnight, so he gave the mare an oral hormone to slow ovulation. The next morning my regular vet came. We had a hemorhagic follicle. The other follicle did not appear ready to ovulate. He did inseminate again. I am wondering at the entire situation! <do>
How did this follicle show up? Was it cause my something we did?

Regumate (altrenogest) will neither slow ovulation nor will it cause a follicle to become hemorrhagic. Mares that have a hemorrhagic follicle will often have this problem more than once during a breeding season.

Actually, while there has been no correlation seen between Regumate use and AHF's, initial research suggests that Regumate may have a slowing effect on follicular growth if given during estrus. The effect is not universal, but has been used clinically in situations where (for example) semen has been lost during shipment and an attempt to delay ovulation has been desirable.
