I have a 17 year old TB mare that has been barren since foaling in 2004. I had her flushed, infused, and a caslik procedure performed following last years breeding season. She was placed under the lights starting on December 1st to get her to start cycling sooner than normal.

I would like to bring the mare to a repo specialist to complete a breeding soundness exam prior to taking her to a stud farm. I believe I have read that the mare has to be in heat to complete the examination. My question is how do you know when to bring the mare to the vet if there is no stud available to tease the mare? Am I better off just bringing the mare to the stud farm after she has been under the lights for 60 days? Any help or advice would be appreciated.

unless she goes through silent heat you will see some winking and discharge if you watch when she comes in. Most mares I know will do this after peeing even if they are quiet cyclers.
