If this has been asked please just point me to the thread that has this Q & A on it.. I have a mare with a Hemorrhagic Ovulatory site and I'm guess it was in Association with Ovulation and not Anovulatory. Can I still breed her and that ovulation take when it's a Hemorrhagic Ovulatory site? I can't find the answer in my books! So had to ask
I suspect that you can't find it in your books because it would not exactly be a description that would be used
All follicles hemorrhage to some degree when they ovulate - some more so than others to form a corpus hemorrhagicum before the CL. Sometimes there is a greater degree of hemorrhage than that, but that is typically associated with an AHF or a variant thereof.
If there is a greater-than-normal amount of hemorrhage associated with an ovulation, then as long as the ovulation was in a timely manner - not hanging on for an excessive amount of time with a large follicle before ovulation - the ovulation should be fertile. Subsequent ovulations are unlikely to be affected as the same site is not going to ovulate twice in immediate succession; the only exception to that might be if the hemorrhage were in a position that interfered with the transport of the ovulating follicle's oocyte to the ovulation fossa of the ovary, which is unlikely as most excess haemorrhages will tend to be towards the outer surface of the ovary rather than the inner section.
Perhaps you can describe in a little more detail what you are seeing and we can go from there...
