Mare WON'T ovulate - help?
Hi all. Just wondering if any of you have any tricks to get a mare to ovulate. We've been trying to catch this mare for weeks now and she never develops a big enough folicle. She will have several on ultrasound that seem like they should mature to be viable withing 2-3 days, and upon re-checking, they will either have remained the same or have begun to shrink. This is the last mare on the farm that needs to be bred - all the others are confirmed in foal have been at least bred. We are pulling our hair out! Hormone shots are seemingly ineffective. Any ideas? We need to get this mare preggo like yesterday!
