Equine infertility is a frustrating epidemic that often ends without a desired foal. Life in an industrialized world has resulted in many mares suffering from hormonal imbalances that cause reproduction issues such as irregular cycles, low follicle size, erratic behavior, as well as many other common health concerns such as ulcers and insulin resistance.
Hormones are basically chemical messengers that transfer signals between cells and they affect everything from metabolism to mood. They control, stimulate or inhibit cell growth, help and hinder our immune system, and prepare our bodies for the various stages of life all the way from birth to death.
They also play a key role in the reaction to life situations such as fight or flight responses as well as mating. Hormones can also regulate the production and release of other hormones and work to keep the body in balance both with itself and with the surrounding environment. (And, unfortunately, synthetic hormones are not capable of providing such a wide range of life-enhancing functions.)
The steroid hormones look similar in their molecular structure, but their effects in the body are quite different. Though their physical differences are slight, they are responsible in determining between a male and a female, pregnancy and infertility, fatigue and energy.
When hormones are out of balance every aspect of a horses’ health and attitude can be affected. Often, especially in an industrialized nation, hormones in horses get out of balance due to the introduction of manufactured feeds and environmental pollutants.
They also affect all parts of the body including the brain, bones, circulation, digestion, liver, kidneys, nerves, muscles, reproductive organs, and the immune system – providing the body with a powerful ability to resist disease. Hormonal balance is essential to overall good health and good attitude and successful breedings.
In 2018 the owner of a mare named Ruby was struggling with losing her dream of breeding this mare. Ruby is a 15-year-old Oldenberg Warmblood mare who was bought with the intention of showing her in dressage and hunter/jumper – and for the dream of ultimately breeding her.
Ruby’s owner Vanessa had spent the previous two years attempting to get 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 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 devasted.
The second year of trying to get Ruby pregnant was much like the first year – a lot of Regumate, vet visits and ultrasounds, all with the same results. Low follicles and a stressed cervix. After many failed breeding attempts another year was lost with Ruby not achieving the desired pregnancy.
The third year Vanessa discovered SERENE BY NATURE® cream. After having decided to give up on anymore breeding attempts, when Vanessa found SERENE BY NATURE® she realized that giving this cream a try would be the direct opposite approach from everything she had been unsuccessfully trying for the past several years.
The fact that SERENE BY NATURE® is bio-identical and all natural was all Vanessa needed to know to want to give it a try. In fact, it was also an additional relief to her that she did not have to have the same fears for her own health and safety that she experienced when administering Regumate (the possible side effects to handlers is quite a daunting list!).
Vanessa chose not to use any other medications or supplements on Ruby, only SERENE BY NATURE® cream. Upon starting the cream Vanessa found that even with irregular weather patterns that seemed to be causing all the mares in the area to have their cycles be off-schedule, Ruby was able to establish regular cycles.
Vanessa reported that not only did her cycles become consistently 21 days – all along the way the cream also made her attitude better, with more focus throughout her heat cycles and an over-all better attitude. Ruby was visibly feeling better than ever before!
As well, the vet was able to confirm that she was producing larger follicles than ever before (50+), and that she was maintaining good edema, and had healthier relaxed cervix.
What happened next was a dream come true for Vanessa. On the second attempt of breeding – RUBY GOT PREGNANT! After 2 failed years of trying that included drugs, lots of (expensive) trips to the vet – all it took to get Ruby happily pregnant was a little dab of bio-identical cream applied topically twice a day. So exciting!!
Now the next hurdle was KEEPING this pregnancy, as she had lost a pregnancy 2 years earlier. Fortunately, SERENE BY NATURE® is to be continued until the 5th month of pregnancy for just this purpose.
On June 2019 Ruby gave birth to a gorgeous and healthy filly!! Her name is Sienna Song and she is adorable, healthy, feisty and loving life. Ruby has shown herself to be an awesome mom who is not only flourishing with optimal health, but is also happy and SERENE.
Here are two fun early videos of Sienna & Ruby:
