Best ways to get a maiden mare in foal? Bred her every other day for 8 days and she didn't take.

How old is she? Is the stallion proven?
It might take two cycles for a maiden. You can get a breeding soundness exam from your vet.

The best way to make sure a mare gets bred on the first shot is to have someone escape their paddock for 15 minutes when you don't want a foal. 🤣 Aside from that it doesn't always happen the first time, or the second, by the 3rd heat cycle I would start to think there was an issue. But that involves getting the vet out and making sure there weren't any issues.

She's 3 almost 4. And yes the stallion is proven. And I bred another mare and she seems to be bred she hasn't came back into heat or shows any interest in him.
