Hello,
Can breed mares show heat cycles? Also what is the normal heat cycle? I have been told 21 days, then they come back in. So which day to i start counting for the mare to come back in. I have one mare who teases the studs for several months at the fence and she was in foal(why will a mare tease a stud if she is in foal?) I would like to breed these two mares if they are not in foal, but i sure was hoping they were breed to the studs out of state. Any information would be great
thanks

About 10% of mares that are in foal will still show estrus. There is discussion about that elsewhere on the board.

The entire estrous cycle is 21 days - that's from ovulation to ovulation. Diestrus consists of ~14 days and estrus ~7 days. Check the article out in the articles section about the mares cycle and hormones for more details.

Jos
thanks for the information. With horses you are always learning information. I haven't had mares tease like this before if breed. I have a mare due the end of july first of aug who tease the stud in her early pregnant stages. The mare brook was breed march 1, 3,5 and lace was breed april 2, 4, 6, 7, so when should i see them in season again, if not breed?Lace was urine for the stud today. Our stud was all happy when he nose with brook, but she wasn't wanting him. Lace was urine for the stud, but he wasn't that interested in her, so is either one in foal or going in or out of season?

You would do best to have them ultrasounded to confirm pregnancy status. Teasing (or lack of) is not 100% reliable, and will not identify twins.

Get them ultrasounded... you don't want twins!

There is a list of used ultrasound machines available from Universal Medical Systems available in the "sales" section of this web site. There is however nowhere that I am aware of that a layperson can go to learn how to ultrasound, so that is a bit of a problem.

Although there are blood tests that can identify pregnancy status, none will identify the presence of twins.

You would be well advised to try and find a vet that will ultrasound for you.

I got an ultrasound machine from universal ultrasound, from the link on this site and am very happy with it, it was the Sonovet 600

There is a course you can take in southern california but I do not want to post it on here, anyone interested can email me hope@vcomm.net
