My 17 year old TB problem mare missed on her first cover of the year after double ovulating. I changed stallions, had her covered on the next cycle, kept her at the vet for 6 days post breeding for monitoring and she is now in-foal!

We checked her at 14 days and the vet confirmed she was in foal but had poor uterine tone and gave a 50% chance she would hold on. We then checked her at 21 days and the pregnency had grew but again the vet said it had lost some shape and there was a possibility she could loose it. We will be checking her again at 28 days to see if she held on. If she can hold on it would be a miracle because her last foal was in 2004.

I just wanted to pass this info along to all of you becasue I know how hard all of you try to give these mares a chance.

Jarad,
Keeping my fingers crossed for your mare. I have had two mares "miss" on the first cover so far this year, so I know about the "waiting game".
Best of luck.

It's meant to lose shape from about day 17 onwards!!!! Take a look at the article about early equine embryology. It should straighten things out for you...

Jos,

Thanks as always for the informative link. Our vet is considered to be very good at reproduction so it may be something he was seeing that I failed to mention.

Anyhow its great to have the mare IF. Hopefully when we go back friday the vet gives us some good news and we have a heartbeat!
