    Yes, this. I was under the impression (please correct me if I am wrong) that conception will bring a mare out of heat sooner.

    I also think you made the right decision. Good on you. =]

    I'm sure a horse can still go through a heat in the early stages of pregnancy, I just don't imagine it's very common.

    What signs of being in heat are you seeing? Mares are only in season for about a week (other than transitional seasons but this is not when those occure), and this has been going on a long time...

    Mares ovulate at the end of their season cycle. Sounds like your mare isn't pregnant, but of course a vet is the only one to say for sure. It's been long enough now an ultrasound will show a pregnancy.

    If she is showing signs of heat this long she needs an ultrasound anyway to check for a cystic ovary.
