My trainer is the person I'm leasing from. I trained the mare with her 40 year old daughter. I am just getting suggestions to helping with this problem. But thank you for your help.:)

Can a marble fall out? Yes, but the odds are reduced if done by a vet who has successfully done it.

Im Sure that that has been cases of the marble wandering and causing infertility but I'm assuming its pretty rare and probably more infection caused. Like I said this is done to performance/ race horses pretty often- Many times these performance mares go off to be broodmares. People wouldn't have this done if the risk of infertility were that high.

Its not right for everyone nor will it work 100% percent of the time just like other methods, but its worth looking into. AND the biggest thing is its not dangerous to handle (like regumate) and its reversable unlike getting the horse spayed. (which IMO is a rediculous option given the mare is LEASED).

OP you should probably check with the horses owner before considering any option. I for one would not be OK with a leasee just doing god knows what to my horse. Suppliments or otherwise. You need to see what they are comfortable with.
No Joe Schmo vet, this was advised against by an Equine Hospital back home that specializes in reproduction. I never said it didn't or wouldn't work, just passing along info that may be worth knowing.

Im sorry I know this is frustrating for you but I'm laughing my butt of reading this!!!!

I only know part of your frustration because I have a 12 hand pony mare that NEVER showed any signs of heat even when with my gelding for years. Then I bought a nice big handsome dark QH and she thought he was a FIIIINNNE LOOKING MAN! It doesn't matter what time of year it is or what day, she will walk up to him, tail swish and squirt!!!!
