Question for you guys with more experience in breeding than me. I have very good mare who went in foal on her first covering and was in foal at 15 days again at 30 but is not now at 45.

My question is are mares more difficult to get in foal after going in foal but not holding the pregnancy? Or is she likely to go in foal just as easily if she starts cycling again?

The mare is probably going to be no more difficult to get in foal, but you should be asking yourself why she lost it. It may be that it was "just one of those things", but you should also be considering the possibility of fibrotic changes to the endometrium. In the event that she gets pregnant again and loses it again in the same time frame, I would strongly encourage having an endometrial biopsy performed to check out the condition of the uterus.

The other issue you may face is if she lost the pregnancy after the formation of the endometrial cups, she may not return to estrus for another 60-90 days... :-(

Thanks Jos, this mare (2002) first went to stud 07 and had a nice colt who has now raced and won She then slipped twice and currently has a very nice filly at foot and was positive from her first covering this season.

She has only been in my care for the last 12 mths. Left home in super condition and if photos are any indication she's in better order now, very good season down here.

She is currently at a highly regarded broadmare farm in the Hunter Valley to walk on to one of Aust top 3 stallion farms.

Would the fibrotic changes you highlight be likely in a young mare like this.

Not as likely in a younger mare, although not impossible. In view of the younger age and foaling history however, I would also add that perhaps a careful evaluation of her cervix be performed to ensure that there is no damage present that is leading to incompetency and subsequent pregnancy loss.

Just to let you know what happened this mare had her uterus flushed and was covered on the 22 Nov and was scanned positive yesterday. Her first foal also had his second win on the weekend in impressive fashion beating a good field.
