I am breeding my madain mare next month at the end of March. I know it is early in the breeding season but being from texas the mares at my boarding ranch start there heats early in the year. I have been tracking her heat cycle and teasing her every 21 days. It seems to be working and she is responding to the teaser stallion. This month though I have been teasing her (starting at day 21) and she has not responded to him. What could cause her to not show a heat or cause her heat to be late? Thank you

Hi Renee, I will give you some idea's maybe you can try. Madain mares can be very inconsistant. Fact is, they dont know what to expect so there behavor maybe all over the place. They also can have a silent heat. This is were you may have to get creative. If she shows when teased thats great but if she does not show well on one of them it dosent mean she is not ready or will not stand. Most new mares once they are bred (live cover)figure out what that guy on the other side of the fence is for and they will be much better to predict next foaling. If going the AI route, I would just have her ultrasounded. It may cost a bit more but you wont miss out on that months heat. Ive had several madain mares not show for teasing. They would wink sometimes for other mares even. Some needed the stallion closer, without a barrier.(Only do this if you are experenced) Young mares love to squel and strike out. DRAMA! If you let your teaser sniff her shoulder and tease her harder she may get it. I prefer to do live cover vs AI. Yes, its alot of work but there is no better teacher than mother nature. To many teases with out the real thing confuses these young ones.Others I put in with my stallion and he pastured bred them. He got them to stand for him. Some mares love this herd method and only respond to it. As long as you are safe and the stallion handler is experenced. Making this a good experence for your mare is #1 but she may not be a text book mare and thats OK! If you are doing live cover maybe she needs closer foreplay, if you are sending her to a breeder you may just want to get her there a few days before her heat so not to miss it. Or ultra sound that will for sure tell you if she is having a silent heat. Hope that helps Karen

Yes that does help and thank you very much for all the good information. We have found one teaser that works for her. I will keep you updated if we get her into foal. It may be one more month though.

I also have a maiden I am breeding this year. She will show to anything--she looks to be in heat a lot but its more of a submissive thing. i will be having her ultrasound to knwo where she is in her cycle--she will be bred live cover--BUT I want to know that she is for sure in heat and not just showing submissiveness
