We bred my 18 yr old mare, which has a foal at her side with shipped semen(65% motility at insemination), everything went textbook with her except that on the 14 days post breeding check nothing showed up fetus wise. She had no fluid, gave her Lut to bring her back in to heat, bred her on a 41mm follicle and gave her HCG, she ovulated within 24 hours of inseminating, well we scanned her today and she had a bunch on Cysts which she has always had in the past breeding her. She has a BIG CL and a 36MM follicle with no edema..... he said there is a possibilty that she still could be bred and wants to check her again tomorrow, he said sometimes, some mares just don't show up on a 14 day scan, though he checked my other younger mare today at 14 days post breeding and it showed her pregnancy, have you guys ever experienced this?! Thanks is advance!!

Yes 14 day pregnancies can be missed. That is why I prefere to have my mares checked at 16 days.
If it were me I would wait a couple days and have her checked again.

That is very early to check. I tease until 20 days then if not coming in I ultrasound. Really saves the $$!

Okay took her back today to get U/S and they still could not tell me either way, we have to go back yet again tomorrow (he is not riping me off promise, he is really good to us!) Anyways what he see's is now a 39mm follicle, the Big CL present and no edema on the follicle, so therefore not a breedable follicle as of right now (we bred her on a 41mm follicle on the 26th of May), especially with the CL present. Though he did find a floating spot, that may be the fetus. He said there are two outcomes of this, One... either the mare was in and out of heat in 14 days and built a CL (which he does not think she did, he said he only ever had 1 mare do that to him) or she is building a follicle to support the pregnancy... he said some mares it takes longer to find/or show up on the Ultrasound, it just depends on when the follicles actually attach and stop floating. So yet we have to wait another day.......

Lisa M,

Sorry, very disappointing for you. Hope that things go smoothly as you try again. Best of luck.

Hi,
I brought a 4 year old mare at the end of march who was in very poor condition. She was pregnancy tested and it came up negative. However, ever since people have commented that she looked in foal. I have been hard feeding her twice every day so she should have no trace of a grass belly. She has put on a lot of weight but still not perfect. Many people have said they have seen and felt movement and there is no way for me to get her tested where I live. I have brought her to break in and I can not start with that until I am sure she is not pregnant. She was with a stallion briefly in September October last year and this would be her first foal. Here are some photo links

Thanks for any help,
Anna
