Missy foaled, new bred mare on the way. Planning on rebreeding, help? :)

(Pictures below most recent to day of birth)
Well Miss Drift Jack foaled Jack's Little Romeo on Valentines Day (February 14th 2011) @ 03:20 am central time. It just so happens that Valentines Day is Missy's birthday was well! He was trying to stand within seconds of birth, drinking and standing within the first hour & Missy passed the placenta in that hour as well. She is an excellent mom with outstanding bloodlines and conformation (she is halter bred). I am looking to rebreed her to a ranch stallion in her 30 day heat. I noticed she was secreting a yellowish thick material. Is she in her 7 day heat? I am a gelding person this was my first mare and first foaling experience and boy have I learned a lot, now I want to learn about the start of the reproduction process. Anything you can tell me about going into heat, breeding, etc will be appreciated!

San Grita is my new bred mare that is due any time. San Grita's picture is at the bottom. She is a mare that was taken to stud February 19th 2010 and left for one to two months. She is a Mr San Peppy mare, real nice lines. She is bred to a gorgeous gray stallion that produces really nice ranch horses with a good level head. I am getting her in a week and will blow this feed up with pictures of her upon arrival. Many of you have asked if she will be on UStream, I am unsure and will post that upon arrival as well. Thank you and god bless!

Please answer the question though! Lol.

Foal heat is normally 7-10 days after foaling, but can be up to 2 weeks after. You may not notice it, especially because you don't "know" this mare in that way yet. Everyone seems to have varying opinions on how the heat manifests, some say it is very silent, others say it is obvious. Of course it completely depends on the individual mare and her environment. For example if she is near a stud, or gelding she finds *handsome* then she may show signs of heat more obvious to observers than if she is alone. The very best way to determine if she is ready is an ultrasound.

PS: I'm sort of new here, but read your other thread and watched about 10min of the recorded foaling of Romeo. Super cute!

Thank you! I'd have to agree about him being cute, but I am a little bias, lol. I am looking for an in depth how to I guess. From the heat to knowing when to breed to AI etc.

Ahh Alanna I know! It really blew my mind that he was so filled so quickly! What a cutie pie. :) And I have no idea about the color either, but maybe he got his momma's genes and will be good enough to keep a stud (my dream). :)

He is built so much like Missy. That would be awesome to keep him a stud as long as he is good at what he does and has a level head. Don't ya wish he could be three and then magically turn back into a cute little foal when you are done riding him? Lol

If you are planning to AI, your vet would ultrasound prior to the expected heat date and determine how close she is to ovulating so you can order semen.

Here is an excellent article with photos on the subject:
Predicting Ovulation in the Mare

The Equine-reproduction website is an amazing resource. If you haven't checked it out already, you'll love it. They also have a selection of recommended books.

Romeo already has a home lined up. The colt after I rebreed will either be kept by myself or sold as a ranch prospect to a good home.
