I have a 13 yo quarter mare who foaled last Aug. I never saw her come back in heat, but figured it might be because it was late in the year. She had a big colt, I did have to help her out a little, but everything seemed OK. (It wasnt her first foal.) I talked to vet to see if I should have her checked, with no discharge and she seemed fine he didnt feel need to see her. I planned on breeding her this spring, took her to the stallion and left her there for 2 months. She has never came in heat. Penned about 20 feet or less from stud, he talks to her all the time and she has never been interested in him. Teasing her at least everyother day and nothing.
Asked vet on another visit if infection could cause her to not come in heat at all. I need to take her in and have work up, but has anyone else had a mare just not come in heat. I just purchased her last year, so don't really know what her cycles are like, but she has had 5 foals.
Thanks
Linda

Linda, this can happen. Sometimes the mare does not ovulate at foal heat and sometimes some mares are so foal proud they will not breed with a foal at foot. There are treatments you can use to try and get her to cycle so I would let your vet ultrasound her and see what is happening on her ovaries. An infection is also a possible.

Check out the article on this site about silent heat, it should help.

Unless it has got to the point of pyometra, an infection is more likely to cause an early (and therefore apparently repeated) return to estrus rather than anestrus (as a result of prostaglandin release from the irritated uterus).

I have heard of silent heat, but thought it happend in mares with foals at side. Her foal had been weaned for months before takeing her to the stud. Thanks for the article about silent heat, big help. This mare has always been a broodmare and last 2 owners pasture breed, so that also fits into the total picture why they never had a problem getting her in foal. Guess I will try again next year with a little more knowlege.
Big Thanks

I have a mare in my barn to be bred. I gave her 2ml of Lutalyse the day she arrived and she never came into heat. So I figured she must have just gone out of heat. Two weeks later I gave her another 2ml of Lutalyse. She is going on day 3 following the injection and still no signs of heat. She is stalled next to the stud and is teased every other day. Any ideas?

Check the articles on this website out that discuss "why prostaglandin didn't work" and silent estrus (follow those links) - they should help.

I had a mare foal on July 28th. Bred back AI on her foal heat. Sample taken after she was already done (from young stallion) was not very good. Figured she probably woudn't take and planned to breed again on next cycle. She is an older brood mare and has always had very strong heats. Baby drained her pretty good in the first few weeks. Had her teeth done. She is puting weight back on. She has yet to come back into cycle. She is stalled right next to a stallion. Could the weight loss have caused her to not cycle, or is there a SLIM chance she took from a low count sample?

Both. Have her checked by a vet to be certain.
