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?
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.
