We have four mares who are not showing anything, they are heavily teased every second day and have been for MONTHS, the best the stallion gets is a "slap" in the face (ears back and nip or bite) They have been PG'd to see if they had retained CL's ... anyway long story short... IF all these pain in the bums are having silent heat is it a good idea to just paddock them with the stallions? We dont have access to have them scanned and or palpitated very often due to distance's etc.

It is quite likely that they are in winter anestrus in the event that you are in the Northern Hemisphere. A good plan would be to have blood-progesterone assays performed upon them - if you are in the USA you can use the newurl{http://www.equitainer.com/Equine/Breeding_Aids/Target.htm,Target Progesterone Assay} kit yourself if you can draw blood. In the event that there is no progesterone present, then they are either in estrus (in which case other indications should be present e.g. relaxed cervix, receptivity to the stallion) or they are still in Winter Anestrus - in which case, wait.

Turning them all out with the stallion may work, or you could end up with a seriously injured stallion that has to be euthanised, which is a risk I would not want to take. :-(

Thanks Jos... risk with running some with the stallion wouldnt be too bad, they have lived together on and off and the stallions all know what "no, piss off means" But I am sketchy on some of the others....

Were still in breeding season over here (Australia) and its been one of those years, every second mare seems to be retaining her CL... some just have NO activity and others are just "showing" all the time the vets are all say what a year its been...

three of the four mares have always cycled noticeably each year... maybe we should ask one of the vets about getting some P&E?
