I bred my maiden mare on thursday to a pretty good sized follicule. I was told she had not yet ovulated but was not checked with ultrasound. The vet didnt not breed her the next day because apparently she had already ovulated during the night. What is the possibility that this maiden mare or maiden mares in general get pregnant on the first try? One other thing, my mare has really stiff stifle should i just leave it alone for now while trying to breed or does anyone know of a supplement or treatment that would be safe in pregnant mares?
Thank you

In case you need more info. Stallion was collected on Wednesday morning from North Dakota and I live in South Texas but we recieved it and inseminated Thursday morning. Would this long trip have any effect on the sperm?

What do you mean by stiff stifle? Is this an injury or something she was born with?
Either way, I would get her comfortable before breeding anymore. If she's in pain or uncomfortable, it will be compounded carrying the extra weight of a foal.
What did your vet recommend about her stifle?
Smart Pak has some informative help when picking out supplements.

well she just doesnt move off her back end very well when asking to canter and I had a friend who is in vet school to take a look at her as I rode and said it looked like her left stifle was stiff and may need to be injected. I asked my vet to look at her and he wouldn't until confirmed pregnant because he didnt want to cause her stress but I worry about her and want to do anything I can to make comfortable. She loves to play and run in the pasture and still does but it just looks like she is uncomfortable when doing so. Thank you for your help.

I have a maiden due any day now. She was inseminated with frozen and caught on the 1st go. However my vets were excellent, and my last mare was the same. 2 for 2 with these vets.
