Do you know any mares struggling with breeding issues?
Last year the owner of a mare named Ruby was struggling with losing her dream of breeding this mare, due to her breeding issues. Ruby is a 15-year-old Oldenberg Warmblood mare who was bought with the intention of showing her in dressage & hunter/jumper – and for the dream of ultimately breeding her.
Ruby’s breeding issues left her owner Vanessa ready to give up,
after two previous years of unsuccessful attempts at getting Ruby pregnant, to no avail.
The first year of breeding Ruby entailed using Regumate in efforts to regulate her cycle, promote ovulation and to attempt to maintain a pregnancy. But the Regumate was not achieving any of these desired results and Ruby was struggling with hormonal issues resulting from this regimen. Due to her imbalanced hormones she was noticeably suffering with pain throughout this process. She had an unstable uterus, poor edema, and low follicle counts down around only 46.
There were many vet visits and many ultrasounds and more Regumate (and lots of money spent). Finally, after too many attempts Ruby got pregnant, but she was unable to sustain the pregnancy and no foal resulted. Everyone was devastated.

Today’s horses are experiencing more stress than ever!
Whether they are show horses, or endurance horses and even horses used for camping, all are subject to added stressors.
With the show season in full swing it’s a good time to stop and take a look at how stressors may affect competitive horses.
Horses are very emotional creatures who are adversely affected by stress.
Understanding this is imperative to having a healthy and happy competitive equine. How individual horses respond to potentially stressful situations differs, but many health ailments are originated from stress of one kind or another.
Stress can be defined as a general term which describes the combination of psychological and biological responses of an animal during real or perceived threatening circumstances. While the physiological response to stress is a highly complex subject, and certainly is not completely understood, scientists agree that there are two types of stressors.
Physical stressors are things such as injury, over-exertion or a change in the environment. Psychological stressors typically include situations that make the animal anxious or fearful. Uncertainty and fear of the unknown can be categorized as two of the major psychological stressors. Competing horses, and even horses who travel for seemingly leisurely activities such as camping, are exposed to both physical and psychological stressors.
The primary concerns with stress are the effects on the endocrine system.
