I have a 4 year old maiden TB mare that was scanned in foal at 16 days last Wednesday, she was scanned again at 19 days on Saturday. This morning I turned her out with two other mares and she was showing to them, winking and spraying and acting in season. I pulled her out and teased her with the teaser stallion and the same response, in fact I'd a job trying to get her away from him. She should be 21 days in foal today. If she lost the pregnancy in the last two days could she be in season already?

About 10% of pregnant mares will still show estrus, particularly at this stage of pregnancy. It is still worth having her checked again to confirm pregnancy prior to about day 28, but estrus at this stage does not automatically indicate pregnancy loss.

As an aside, there is a slight correlation between mares that show estrus during pregnancy and those mares that produce fillies. :-)

Had her scanned again today and still in foal at 21 days. We'll check her again about 30 days for a heartbeat... Typical! Always hoping for colts!

That is a cool tid bit, my mare that is due very soon showed in heat for a couple of months after being bred (we thought she wasn't in foal anyways, vet said "no" and we decided we didn't want to breed her again for a later foal). Anyhow, she turned out to be "in foal" afterall. I did the nail test (I know, silly wives tale!) and it did say filly! So we'll see, fun guessing around anyhow!

Jos, is there any correlation to the gender and the mare acting like a stud after getting bred?

Don't y'all be posting complaints to me when your mares have colts even though they showed estrus during pregnancy! It's not an absolute!!! We will not provide rebates on pink halters!!! :-)

And no, the converse is not true - mares showing stallion-like behaviour during pregnancy are not correlated to a higher percentage of colts. It merely indicates that the fetus is secreting good levels of testosterone, and both colt and filly fetuses secrete testosterone...

Darn! j/k. I guess I'll just have to keep waiting for my mare to give into nature and have her foal.
