I have a mare here that came into heat. I in hand bred her every other day for 5 days. The 5th day she kicked some and didn't seem as receptive. I figured she was going out. I waited a couple days and teased her. She seemed indifferent to him. I figured it was safe to turn her out with the stallion. The first day she kicked at him and he pretty much left her alone. That evening I got a call that he was breeding her numerous times. I left her out there figuring she would be going out anytime. A week later she was still standing for him!
I seperated them. She seemed to have a discharge.
Was she just clearing because of the multiple covers and/or does she have an infection? I'm having the vet out Monday to check her. What tests should I have them run? Should I have my stallion checked too? He is showing no signs of an infection.
Thanks

It's impossible to predict what you are seeing without evaluation, so your vet is the one to ask.

As the mare has been bred, make sure that you start with an ultrasound pregnancy examination! This can be done as early as 10-12 days post ovulation, but is normally not performed until 14-15 days. This check is essential, as if she is pregnant, you do not want to perform a culture and cytology swab (which is what would probably be called for in this situation - follow the link for more details), as penetration of the cervix will be highly likely to cause pregnancy loss.
