Hi,
I am looking for suggestions on how to keep a mare in foal, =] !
She has had 3 foals before, for someone else, last in 2000. she is 17 and in superior health, doesn't look or act her age. (most people see her and think 7-8 yrs old)
She threw off in 05.
She was bred middle to end of may 06 for an 07 foal. She should be about 10 months now and I would think, showing by now. Our other mare bred same time is really showing and so is another mare bred about 1 month later.

It really doesn't matter if she isn't pregnant as she hasn't been under lights, so she wouldn't be having a viable cycle now anyway.

I was really looking for suggestions on how to keep a mare in foal or help her carry it to term other than what we had done.
confirmed in foal 90 days, regumate 10CC everyday for 3-4 months, vet said that she should be alright, we stopped regumate.
Someone at home also mentioned the progesterone as well and said it was a weekly shot versus the daily regumate. (she learned what was coming pretty quick =])
So other than having the breeding soundness exam and waiting for their results what would be some other things to try to keep her in foal?

Thank you everyone,
Sincerely,
Angela

First find out if she is still in foal! If she is, then all your planning will be for nothing! :-)

If you find she is not in foal, then you would probably do well to have a uterine biopsy performed prior to breeding again to determine if there are uterine issues that may be dealt with. Endometrial or glandular fibrosis is commonly linked to pregnancy loss in the up-to 90 day range.

Read some of the articles in the articles section of this web site - there are quite a fwe there that may be of use.

Hi,
Thank you.
She was confirmed in foal at 90 days so we're not sure when after that she lost it as she did 3 months after that on regumate as well. I will check the articles out and also have to have a breeding soundness exam done and work very closly with the vet to see what can be done for her.

Thank you for taking the time to write,
I appreciate it,
Take care,
Angela
