I'm wondering how long after the LBD would a mare generally come back in season? I always thought it was 2 weeks but had someone tell me 3. We have a mare that we bred 2 weeks ago today, but she wants noting to to with the stallion up to this point.... stomping her feet, squealing and swishing her tail. I'm hoping she is bred, but planned to wait on our second mare before having them both ultrasounded at the same time.

Thank you!!!

I know... It's been hard. We bought this stallion back in 2004 and these will be our first foals. Needless to say we are very excited.

Now it has been 18 days! Good luck but remember it is only Mar. I know how excited I was waiting for my stallions first baby, it was so exciting and nerve racking...it was also our first baby ever.

Unfortunately she did not take. We will be trying again in a few days. We also just finished covering our 2nd mare and she has gone out.... but she too had a longer than usual cycle.... so I'm guessing she probably was in the transitional stage as well. Just started with our 3rd mare.

I know living here in the gray, cold and wet PNW, it can be hard to get these mares to cycle.... but like Dianne mentions, we are all just very excited to have some babies! We'll get there.

Lori sorry it didnt take, but dont get down spring is on the way!! Good luck with all of them. I think we are going to wait until end of
April to try. We have palomino who produced palomino paint baby from our paint stud. I have had five people want to buy him, but he is my sons and he wont sell. So we are going to try again!

I bred one mare last night and another this morning and hope they both ovulate and are in foal. One mare was a neurological mess last year and it took about 5 people to steady her to be bred, needless to say she did not take, nmother nature protected her. Maybe just maybe she caught last night since she bred like a normal mare.

Well we are trying again with the one who didn't take. Our older mare was just covered 3 times and out. Waiting on the 3rd to see if she comes back in.... so keeping my fingers crossed once again.

Good luck Diane & Cathy... hope both of your mares take for you the first time.

Not me!!! I follow my mares with US so I never have to cover more than once. Every now and then one hangs on and I have to cover twice, but I prefere not to. It cuts down on the chance of injury and uterine inflamitory response.

Not me two!
Only way my mares get pregnant is by AI...and tracking by ultrasound. No stallion is getting near my girl!

It is a pain though cause down here the stud farm gives you ones shot so via vet and US you have to be right on and ovulate the next day. So far have several bred and one declared in foal(the only one checked as of now)

We do work with the vet, but have our stallion on premise so if we do need to cover more than once... we can. I know that AI is safer for all, but you must remember that live cover is the way mother nature intended it to be.

Oh we have to live cover, AI is against the rules of the Jockey Club, not that it is not done, just illegal. It is just when studs have 100 mares booked for the breeding season of Feb - end of June they only give you one shot per heat.

Yea, the TB's haven't got a choice. That one is out of your hands.
Live cover may be natures way...but with AI, I can provide the very best cross to my mare, reduce future fertility issues/contamination, and minimize the likelyhood of injury.
Since I only breed 1-2 mares at a time...it makes sense financially for me as well. No traveling, no boarding/mare care....all that stuff.
Hope I don't jinx myself here...mare is getting AI'd this week (crossing fingers).

Thank you Lori :-).
The repro vet was out yesterday and this morning. Grace is ripe and RTG. Semen was ordered today, expected FedEx to deliver tomorrow morning.
So, if all goes well, Grace has a date with FedEx tomorrow.
Fingers crossed folks!

My vet calls it "the man in the can" :-) and she always sent the "soldiers" to do their job! Fingers crossed and doing the fertility dance for you in CA!

Thanks Jan. She was re-ultrasounded and inseminated this morning. Soldiers have been sent to the front line :-).
Always appreciate any fertility dance!
