First off I have to say I really appreciate this website!! I have been lurking for over a year and now decided to join! I am sooo excited... anyways I have a 18 yr old mare that has been bred pretty much every year with shipped semen on her foal heat. Well this year she had bruising and fluid (from foaling this year) so my vet suggested that we infuse and clean her out and wait for the "30 day heat" to breed her... now here's my problem, she is a silent heat mare and you don't know when she is in heat, that is why her pervious owners bred her on her foal heat every year... so my question is.. we are breeding her with shipped semen this year and it's already getting late, should I take her to the vet 25 days post foaling so he can watch her follicle or what should I do?! I can't afford to not breed her as she is very valuable and the paid over $4000 for a stud fee for her this year! Any info would be great in getting this silent mare in foal!!!

Wow you have to take her to a vet? They don't come to you? Yes you need a vet to tell you when to ship the semen, even on mares who tease you should do this.

Yikes, my vet comes to my farm several times a day. Today she is coming to palpate and open a mare, then back this afternoon to treat and close the mare after breeding then back again tonight to give a foal its 30 day plasma.

Vets here in Texas very rarely make ranch calls. I know in California, it was the norm for the vet to come to you.

It is in Florida and Kentucky too. I used to have show horses in Texas a distinctly remember the vet coming out several times for various things. The farm I kept them with never took their horses to the vet the vets were ambulatory.

I live on the outskirts of Houston, Tx. Being so populated, you can't throw a rock w/out hitting a vet. But, in the more rural areas I can see how getting one out may be tough. Probably not as tough as Wyoming!!
