Two years ago my mare was at another farm on foal share. After having two uncomplicated pregnancies, I was informed that my mare was not bred, and asked to come pick her up, as the farm she was at was phasing out their breeding operation. I picked her up, and by December I thought she looked a bit larger than normal. Needless to say, she delivered a nice filly in spring of 04. The farm insists that they ultrasounded her and that it indicated she was not bred. We tried to breed her last year, but she did not take. It appears that only one ovary is producing a breedable follicle. We tried to breed her this spring again, and she showed heat the first of May. We bred her three times. Ultrasounded her 20 days later, and she shows open again. She never returned into heat, so I picked her up from the breeder about 75 days after her breeding. Now, about two weeks later, still no heat.

Has anyone ever had consistent false negatives on the ultrasound? These were two different vets here both times. I will be getting this mare palp checked soon to see where she is at. I just wonder about the possibility of so many false negatives.

HI,

Im not much help here, but I am hoping for a pregnant (not pregnant by ultrasound) mare. She isn't coming back into season yet and at 18 days she was open according to the ultrasound. Good luck and how strange!

My mare was ultrasound 16 days after being bred and I was told she was not pregnant but would ovulate later that week. Took her back to the stud and she didn't come into heat so took her to another vet and was ultrasound and they said she was indeed bred and was about 30 days pregnant so........the other vet missed the pregnancy on the ultrasound

We were sent a maiden mare last year, that had been covered once and kicked the stallion, damaging him enough to put him out of action for half the season. She was sent to us after negative scans at 16 and 21 days.The plan was to send her to one of our stallions instead. She didn't cycle for couple of weeks, so we scanned her again, with a view to giving her lutalyse. Lucky we looked first as she was in foal.
