We seem to have our fair share of problem mares huh?

This one I just found out about. It is an 8 year old mare being free leased by a good friend. She was bred for the first time in 2008 and in foal first try. Friend checked at 30 days, confirmed heartbeat. Months later notices mare does not 'look' pregnant, and upon palpation confirms she is empty. This year, bred mare again, same thing, in foal first try, heartbeat and so forth, recheck at day 45 as mare is acting "studlike" and "herding" her pasturemates, and baby is gone. She was on Regumate this year.

Any ideas why this would be occuring? Could it just be plain bad luck, or more obviously some sort of problem, hormonal or otherwise? I would assume her biopsy would be good since she catches easily and is young, or is that the wrong assumption? Any advice is appreciated!!! Thanks so much!!!

Have an endometrial biopsy performed. It will probably tell you lots. A biopsy result is linked to the likelihood of a live foal production, not pregnancy so your assumption is incorrect. One thing for example that a biopsy may demonstrate is endometrial or glandular fibrosis - which is highly correlated to pregnancy loss after about 35-40 days.
