Now I am praying my mare takes this time --3rd cycle being bred. I guess my question is whats next. If she does not take this time what else should I be doing? Or this time? I am wonder if the day she seems to be out of heat if I shoudl have her ultrasound to make sure hse has ovulated and has not clearance issues???
The breeder is an idiot-- he thinks a mares cycle is 30 days-- he only believes in covering them twice even if they are in standing heat for 5 days after seemed offended last time when I asked if he could have his vet out to ultrasound to see if she had ovulated. This is a man who has bred Clydesdales for years and years.... I also told him if he ohly wants to cover them twice to wait at least a couple days from the onset of their heat then start the covering but again he is just dumb
So should I when he says she is out of heat or done being covered have her ultrasound to see if she has ovulated? make sure she does not have clearance issues etc..
i had a complete breeding exam in feb-all was normal.. she is 19 and had her last foal in 2008
The first cover I think we missed the ovulation becuase he would not cover her again-covered her on tuesday she was still in standing heat til saturday..... This past cycle everything seemed right--her last cover was on saturday and she was no longer in heat the next day but she did not take
anyway any ideas or advice would be appreciated

At 19, you should be on the alert for delayed uterine clearance issues and the possible need for use of an oxytocin protocol - which probably won't go down well with the stallion owner from what you are saying.

You need this mare ultrasounded, probably both before and after breeding.

You might also be best off to cut your losses and switch to a different stallion... It will be cheaper than having a mare open for the year. :-(
