We have just scanned one of our mares, that we thought we might have inseminated too late, as the vet didnt get to us in time to scan the follicle as he had an emergency, and surprise surprise no embryo!

We have decided that rather than using merlin again we might use znoopy (zigeunerknabe), as he has had loads of mares from private owners but has not been used on one of ours yet.

He has not covered naturally yet, (he is only 3) but we are going to try it with this particular mare as she can be difficult to get in foal.

Fingers crossed she is nice to him!

Ellie's grandad (Tepukei) was used to cover 'difficult' mares in the 1970's and apparently everyone of them without exception fell pregnant
so hopefully your mare will too.

Good Luck
