I have a six year old maiden mare. Bred last year AI to old stallion, no baby. She was at a repro center so I don't know what was going on last year. This year 20-25 follicles on both ovaries. She has been on regumate for 14 days then prostaglandin for 2 cycles. She was in a standing heat day before yesterday but no breedable follicle. Vet is checking hormone levels. Any ideas?

Thank you Mariana. Hopefully someone will have an answer or at least a step in the right direction.

I am sure somebody will post an answer to your question or some insight about it. In any case you can maybe ask Jos to answer you...?.

Read the article about Progestin use (follow that link) on this site, and it will give you some reasons why your mare is doing what she has after Regumate use. It's not necessarily unusual.

Thanks! I read the article and I think I understand. However, what do I do with her now? I was thinking maybe letting her sit out a couple of months and see if she starts cycling normally. Is there something else I could do to get her going again?

You need to follow her cycle more closely. Ultrasound to try and identify a CL or run a (or a series of) progesterone assay[s] to determine if she is ovulating and you're just missing it. If you do find that she is ovulating, then you might want to try using P&E.
