Possible abortion?

I had tried to breed my breed my mare last year to my stallion. She was covered twice every other day. We could of tried one more day, but we didn't. Well, she started to act every unusual. EXTREMELY loving, wanting attention, didn't spook at objects she normally did, just plain relaxed. She even let us approach her to catch her, which she likes to be chased for a couple minutes. I'm not sure. She didn't show heat till maybe the 18th day after her last covering and we had her ultrasounded, found out she was ovulating. Her old attitude came bach after day 15-18? I'm convinced she aborted it for some reason. The vet wasn't sure either, but it was possible. Does anyone have a thought about this? She didn't have any infections either.

Was she ever confirmed in foal in the first place?

I couldn't get her in when I wanted to. I got her checked at 21-22 days. I wanted to see at 14-16 days. The vet said it was possible, but other than that, not much to go on.

I'm slightly confused. This was all in an 18 day span? Don't horses come into heat monthly? Which would mean when she was bred, she wasn't actually in heat. But when she was ultra-sounded on day 18 she was ovulating?

If she were to abort the fetus, she wouldn't start ovulating until the next month during her heat cycle. They don't just ovulate right away so there isn't enough time for her to abort and then ovulate within the 18 days.

I'm guessing that she never caught for one reason or another.

I do know that in people and animals that within the first month of pregnancy will abort the fetus for one reason or another. My anatomy teacher stated that 2/3rds of the eggs that are actually fertilized get aborted and most people never know. So it really is quite astonishing that we are here.

Usually it's every 21 days the come into heat. Sorry to confuse you.

She was bred twice with one day in between. She came out two days after her last cover and wanted nothing to do with the gelding(pasturemate). In about 15-18 days her attitude changed back to her normal attitude. She came back into heat at day 18. She was checked on day 21-22 because I couldn't get her in earlier like I wanted.
