I am a novice breeder and I have my Hanoverian broodmare at a broodmare farm with knowledgeable people. I was told my mare had a large follicle and they were hoping to breed her earlier this week, however on U/S, it was noted she had a corpus hemorrhagicum. The vet said it was like a bruise and they have to treat it because she wont make progesterone. (I don’t know if I have this right) I have googled CH and read everything I could, but I don’t exactly understand what I am reading.
I have some questions to anyone who knows about this or has dealt with it.
Is this common? And do mares that have this that are short cycled get in foal? How many cycles does it take?
Is the mare more at risk when they have this of further complications? Twins?
Would I be better off not trying to breed this mare and buy something else?
I have brain deficits and I have some difficulty processing what I have read and how it applies in real world scenarios.
Thank you in advance for helping me and educating me.
