I have a 16 year old TB mare that has been barren for 2005 and 2006. I purschased her last summer so not sure why she was barren those two years becasuse she has had 7 foals before that time period. Anyway I put her under the lights on November 1st until a few weeks ago after the time change. We have been palpating & Ultrasounding this mare every 8-10 days since Feb. 1st and she has not grown any folicles. After the first palpation on Feb. 1st we gave her the shot to bring her back into heat but it did not work. After that we decided to lay back and just keep checking her. Its been two months and no progress has been made, is this mare in a transition period because of the time of year? I noticed all of the foals she has prior to when I purchased her were foaled in ethier April or May so that tells me she may be a late breeder. Any thoughts or opinons??

Prostin will not work on mares who have not ovulated (in transition) How is she teasing? You have n idea why she was barren? So if you do get her in foal you will not know if she is a Regumate mare or anything? Perhaps call the old owners and ask, now that she is sold they should have no problem coming off with the truth.

Transitional phase is a likely issue, especially if you are in the northern parts of North America. Many mares do not routinely cycle and ovulate until April or even May. An ultrasound and/or progesterone assay series will help you find out if she is indeed ovulating yet for the year.

I am in south louisiana so not sure if she is still in transition. I called Louisiana State University and talked to one of the vets there, he reccomended putting her on regumate for 10 - 15 days and then getting her checked. I also had my local vet do some blood work to check her thyroids and we found out her thyroid levels are low. We will be taking her off of the regumate tomorrow, wish me luck.

Good luck to you Jarad! What parish do you live in, I am in Tangipahoa, I have three mares acting like they are going in & out. I am taking one to a friends to breed to his stud and breeding the other two to my stud on their next heat.

Thanks Dianne
I am in Vermillion Parish. We decided today that we are going to bring the Mare to Folsom tomorrow morning to let the stud farm work with her as she finishes off the regumate. We dont want to take the chance of missing her cycle and I am hoping that being around the studs will maybe help a little also. I am really hoping the regumate works and she finally produces some folicles.

Jarad...Folsom is about 20 minutes from my place! Being around the stallions should help her out. What stud are you breeding to? Which farm is he on? My vet does alot of equine work in that area, Dr. Cooper, he is the vet for the training center in Folsum. Good luck to you!

I am breeding her to My Friend Max, we dropped her off this morning at Double Dam Farm. He is a really impressive looking stud, Royal Strand looks great too. I think Dr. Cooper does Camelot Farms vet work also becasue I picked up my other mare this morning from Camelot and I had a bill from Cooper Mobile Vet. I think the thyroid medication and the regumate should help her out. Her coat and overall condition has really improved since she has started the medications.

I ended up breeding her to Global Mission, she had a good folicale and breed well but did not take. We will check her once more tomorrow to see if we can get her breed again before mid june. Its sad to have such a nice mare that is so hard to get in foal.
