Ive got a 12 yr old morgan mare, and we have been trying to get her bred for 2 years. After she is bread she stays in heat. The vet recommended we give her a shot to take her out of heat. After 14 days we had her checked and she was in foal. At 30 days she had lost it. This has happened 3 times. After going out of heat each occassion we gave her regumate because her progesterone levels were low. Anyone have any suggestions or ideas? This is a great mare and we really want to get a baby from her. Thanks.

  • How long does she remain in heat after ovulation?
  • Check out the article about progestin (Regumate) supplementation - it should give you a new viewpoint;
  • Did you have a pre-breeding evaluation performed with a culture and cytology performed?
  • How many foals has she had in the past?
  • Have you had a uterine biopsy performed - if so, what was the grade?

if we dont take her out of heat she will remain in a standing heat for 14 days as far as a time limit as to how long she stays in after ovulation im not sure. yes she did have a prebreeding evaluation done, but i believe only a culture was preformed. she is a madien mare. and no i have not had a uterine biopsy done. }thanks for your reply

Mares may display submissive behaviour in the form of estrus display, and this is one possibility for the persistent estrus. Another possibility is that she is still transitional. What do you mean by "a shot to take her out of heat"? The only thing that will stop a mare from displaying estrus is progesterone. If you mean an injection of something to make her ovulate, and without that she is not ovulating, that is a different problem.

I would start all over again with a good breeding soundness examination including a biopsy.
