    I only use live cover with my stallion and he has never attempted to mount a mare when she was not in heat.
    He also does not approach any mare from the rear in order to avoid being kicked.
    Biting the mare on her flank or hip is what stallions do to test and tease the mare.
    He has never left a mark when biting a mare and she always accepts him without a fuss.
    If they do not think she has come into heat why are you picking her up? Mares left here for breeding are covered when they are in heat and stay for the next cycle. 14-21 days after breeding we have the mare owner US that mare.
    Sounds like a young stallion and inexperienced breeders.
    What does your breeding contract state?
    I also question taking a mare and putting her in a pasture with a stallion 3 weeks before she is due to cycle. Shalom

    The contract had stated that I was to bring her over on x date (figured out for the 30th of April) and would be able to keep her over there for up to 31 days. And that I could bring her home early if I deemed it necessary. And I did, for one she was kicking the crap out of the stallion and biting at him any time he tried to get close to her. And two, and TRUST me if I would have known this my mare would NEVER have gone to this stud, or anywhere close to the husband. The husband was a drunk, sober in the mornings but drunker than a skunk by 3PM. I was worried about my girl's safety. So I brought her home early. The lady is a sweetie and knows what she is doing. But she works almost everyday so she wasnt home most of the time. And I didnt want him to be stupid and go out there and try to do something with the stallion and have him get pissed of (the stud, sorry for using the P word, I couldnt figure out what else to say) and hurt the guy because he thought he was being cool. Yes, I know I should have known better. But every time we had met he was fine. But that was in the mornings or early afternoons. And sorry it has taken me so long to write back!! I will be seeing if I can get a ultrasound done on her within the next couple weeks.

    If she let him mount her, she was most likely in heat. Hopefully you'll get your foal.

    I too think if she let him mount her she was in heat. She kicked him to keep him at a distance and to inform him she was not available or ready.
    Take her to be USed and see if she is in foal. Good luck. Shalom

    He much does a ultrasound usually cost? Not worried about the cost just kinda wondering. When should I get her a ultrasound? She would be 25 days along.

    Have it done As soon as possible. She should be coming back into heat if she did not take.
    Here they run about 125-150 for an Ultra Sound.
    My family gets a discount at our local vet since we own such a large number of livestock. Or at least that's what he tells us. I sometimes suspect that everyone pays the same price. LOL Shalom

    Whoa, an ultrasound for an open mare is 25 bucks over here and if she is bred, it's either 50 or 60, I can't remember exactly. Totally worth it though, you don't wanna end up losing your mare and babies because of a careless mistake when you can catch it early and fix it!

    Your best bet is to call your vet and ask as prices can vary from region to region and even vet to vet.

    Thanks ladies! And I will call him on monday. My vet is the only big animal vet around our area, and I am not even sure if he does ultrasounds. Good thing there are other vets around here!
