I just wanted to post this to give some of your some hope who are breeding problem mares. Sorry it's so long!
My mare is a 12 year old maiden morgan mare. I had her AI'd three times last year and she never took. The vet was baffled, because there just didn't seem to be anything wrong with her. Except that her cervix was tight, and she did tend to retain fluid.
He always did as much as he could to make sure she got rid of the excess fluid.
The semen was always awesome quality and we caught her at good times all except the last time, when she'd already ovulated, but just barely.
I decided I'd try to breed again this year, and my sister found out about this "supplement" called Immunall (http://www.immunall.com/), and heard good things about it. She also had tried having her mare AI'd three times and didn't work, so we were both desperate, and ordered some
This year we cultured her and took a cytology. Both came back clear. We ordered semen when the time came. It was a Friday that we got it, and the vet had been a little worried that maybe it was actually going to be too early. He ultrasounded her and said, "We're going to breed post ovulation." My heart just sank. We'd decided earlier in the year that we wanted to try deep-horn insemination. This was the first time my vet had done it.
Later in the day he called me to give me the results of the semen sample. It was awful. Most of the sperm was dead or had crooked tails or was swimming backwards. He didn't give me much hope at all, that Breez would get pregnant.
The vet came out July 12th and pretty much knew immediately that she was pregnant! Let's just hope that she can carry the foal to term now.

Just be sure Immunall is safe for pregnant mares. Alot of supplements are not. Congratulations!
