Example text

Ultrasound examination • Ovaries: size may depend upon season of the year. Moderately echogenic CL can always be identified. CL is often slightly triangular in shape (apex directed towards the ovulation fossa), with central line of echogenic tissue. Cyclical Changes in Mare’s Reproductive Tract • 39 Follicular growth may be present (more common in late luteal phase); large follicles may be evident. Uterus: small in diameter compared with oestrus. Endometrium has no oedema (homogeneous echotexture); location of the lumen may be identifiable by the presence of a small white line.

1 The optimum time for breeding The mare ovulates secondary oocytes that are capable of being fertilised immediately. Oocytes retain maximal viability for only 12 hours after ovulation; however, it is clear that spermatozoa may survive for prolonged periods of time within the female reproductive tract (Fig. 1). The optimum time for mating or insemination would therefore appear to be 24–48 hours before ovulation, thus allowing time for spermatozoa to undergo capacitation. 3) it may be appropriate for mating or insemination to occur earlier.

D) Postovulatory – the follicular cavity has filled with blood clot and has become markedly echoic in appearance. This early luteal structure may be termed a corpus haemorrhagicum (CH), although it is correct to refer to it as a corpus luteum. Not all CHs are entirely echogenic and some may have fluid-filled cavities within them. (e) Ageing of the CH results in a decrease in its echogenicity and a reduction in its size. In this example, three days after ovulation, the structure was still palpable per rectum.
