Hello,
I have an 11 year old appaloosa mare. I bought her in 2003 and she was in foal. She had a beautiful, healthy stud colt in 2004. We missed her foal heat in 2004, and bred her ever heat and she stuck At the end of June. (It took 3 months to get her in foal). In 2005 she had a beautiful, healthy filly. Her filly was born the 21st of May 2005, we tried to get her in foal June and July. We did not have her vet checked until November. She was not in foal. The vet said that she looked like there was fluid in her uterus. We had her infussed then. In early spring 2006 we had her vet checked before we were going to start breeding her. Our vet cultured her, that culture came back neg. Our vet suggested oxytocin to be used. We would breed her every other day of her heat and use oxytocin the days that we did not breed. Once she was out of heat we used Oxytocin 2 times after. And each and every time we had her checked at 17 days, and she was never in foal. We started breeding her in March and in June we were getting very discouraged, we had her hormone levels drawn. Her levels were very low, (.2), but we checked her levels on the 2nd day of her heat so I was expecting them to be low. We started her on regumate after we bred her. at 17 days, still no foal. We tried again in July, and the vet came out at 20 days, checked her, and said that she didnt see anything, and usually by now if she is not bred, she usually has big folacles (sp). But nothing! The vet looked around a while, and she said that she seen something small that could be a small folacle dexeloping or a very little chance that she may be bred. (when we bred her in July, she had 2 large folacles) So we were really hoping she would at least get pregnant. Our vet came back out a week later to check her again (she didnt think that it was nessary but we asked her too). The day that the vet came out, she was in a hurry and checked her quickly. She is around a stallion all of the time, and she has not shown signs of heat since July.
I do not know where to go from here.
I thought about selling her, but would love to get a filly out of her before. She is a great mare, and has some of the nicest foals. We sold her 2005 filly before we knew that she was going to have this problem. Our vet says that everything looks great inside, and she does not know why she is not getting bred.
Any ideas!
Thank You
