Well after what I thought would be perfect timing my mare is not pregnant. She was ovulating a 43mm follicle at the same time we were breedingher. I thought for sure she would be pregnant, but nope!

Vet suggest we U/S on tues to see where she is at then hopefully be able to do a culture and a flush and then rebreed by the end of the week, AI. Anyone have any suggestions??

She is an 18 yr old mare that has had 3 foals and was open last yr, she is also, for better words, a windsucker, feel free to correct me or give me the proper word for that.

One of the commonest, and easiest issues to have a good chance at fixing in older mares is delayed uterine clearance. Often simply following an oxytocin protocol such as the one laid out in the link solves the problem. It's cheap and it's easy - you might want to talk to your vet about giving it a go!

Interesting, thanks Jos, I had a feeling that she probably has a little something going on inside there, the vet said she had no fluid in her uterus before he bred her, and her vulva conf. is good, I suppose just the fact that she is a windsucker is enough to contaminate???? I will print out the protocol and pass it along next week. Thanks!!!!!

Yup... windsucking will do it!

FWIW - we've had good success getting "difficult" mares pregnant using the protocol that did not have apparent uterine fluid. Note too that lack of fluid pre-breeding does not necessarily equate to lack of fluid or prolonged inflammatory response post-breeding.
