Double Side Ovulation

Hey everyone! I've never delt with double sided ovulation. Meaning both sides are 32cm and my vet is possitive he needs shipment tomorrow. Not sure if it will be over night or same day. He's going to check her at 6:30am and he's going to call us tomorrow too. Isn't double sided ovulation up the chances of twinning? Does it up the chances of conception too?

Double ovulation would dramatically increase the possibility of twins. However, I don't think it is very common for both follicles in a double to be the exact same size, unless one came from each ovary. (You also mean to say the follicles are 32mm not cm.)

I don't know if it technically increases your chances of conception. If they both ovulate at the same time, I would say the only increase is that you have two available for fertilization. If they ovulate at different times, the increase would be that you have a larger window of time for at least one to be fertilized. That issue is something you would have to try to research.

I also suggest this article Predicting Ovulation in the Mare (Because who doesn't love Equine-Repro!!)

If I were you though, I would be calling the stallion owner, because I bet you will need semen tomorrow, and if they shipped it tomorrow it will probably be too late.

Yeah I was meaning mm. Lol. It may have been 32 and 31. I was too busy thinking about what was going on here. My mom came with me this time. I actually talked to the vet before he had to leave and said he he needed the semen ordered as early as possible. He thinks she'll start ovulating on Thursday. :( all I can say is this is the last time I can breed AI this year. Its cost me alot. And I have vacation to pay for coming june as well. I need a prayer on this......

If everything pans out correctly, we plan to ultrasound her around the same time and again around 30 :)

I sure hope the phone call isn't missed....she's being checked at 6:30am.....maybe I should stay up at 6am. Just don't want to miss my chance to call in her shipment if anything else.
