well, my mare had her foal on the 15th and the vet determined she would be a good canidate for foal heat breeding. i took her to the breeding farm on the 18th. she is going to be bred by shipped cooled semen. the breeding manager just called me to tell me that my mare is coming into heat and she had the vet come out and palpate her and he said she looks good to breed. here's my issue: i thought you couldn't breed till day 10 or the uterus won't be ready to support the embryo? is my mare going to be allright to breed? i really dont want to waste time and money if its not going to work. any thoughts/ideas?

It has been shown that 4 criteria should be met in order for there to be a better success (pregnancy) rate on foal-heat breedings:
  1. It should have been a trouble-free delivery - no dystocia, retained placenta, or abnormal bruising of the reproductive tract;
  2. The placenta should have been normal in appearance - not excessively thick or thin, or discoloured;
  3. There should be little or no discharge by day 7 post-foaling, and if there is discharge it should be colourless or very slightly pink and clear (i.e. not purulent);
  4. The foal-heat ovulation should occur at least 10 days post-foaling.
If any one or more of those criteria are not met, then the chances of pregnancy establishment and maintenance are not eliminated, merely reduced.

right, so if she's just coming into heat today and she usually ovulates 24-48 hours before the end of estrus, and heat lasts 5-7 days that should put me past the 10 day mark. keeping my fingers crossed that nature works as it should.
