I have a tb x bay mare who is 9 years old.
A 10 onth + colt with one testicle jumped and was seen covering my mare. She was on her 3rd day of season and there was not a 4th day. My mare is 17.2hh and the colt is and 13.3 so not sure it would reach, is it possible that if he did reach could my mare be pregnant. I have arranged and paid a deposit for a stud fee for a warmblood very similar in colour. but the colt is a cob and dont know what to do. Can anyone help me please.}

You can ultra sound 16 days from cover date and the vet can terminate if you choose. I have heard of instances where yearlings have succesfully bred their mothers because they were not separated. Logic indicates that he shouldn't have been able to reach, but...I wouldn't trust that for a moment.

I am on a livery yard in uk and i told the owners of the colt and the livery owners that he should not be turned out. I put my mare out to pasture on the saterday morning (not in the same pasture as the colt) I did not know that the colt was turned out in the first place. and he was taken out of her pasture on sunday evening. I am very annoyed as already paid a stud fee for her serving. The women whos stud it is said i could have a full refund if i choose to keep the foal if she has caught. It is the comming out of season early that i cant understand, and is that a sign that she could of caught. these stupid people have not got a clue and shouldnt be allowed to own a dangerous animal as they are keeping it in sire.

I have to agree ith eveything you just said and I would be furious, also. Mares can continue to show in estrus even a few days after conception. Whether or not they can also cease immedately is a question for more exeienced breeders. I am sure you will get responses from them on this board...I know the basics.

Mares cease to display a positive response to a stallion once the progesterone levels are high enough to cause that resistance. Progesterone is secreted by the CL, which is the structure that forms on the ovary where the follicle was following ovulation. The progesterone levels will typically reach the resistance levels 24-48 hours after ovulation.

Not all mares show receptiveness for 5-7 days, so the mare may have been further along in her estrus than day 3 when she was exposed to the colt.

There is no doubt that this mare should be checked for pregnancy, or else given prostaglandin at about 10 days after she was exposed to the stallion, and then checked (or she may come back into estrus - but still confirm lack of pregnancy by ultrasound).

So is she bred? or do you not know yet?
