    Default follicle size on a large medium, small large pony mare

    HI there, TIA, my repro vet, who does 99.5% horses, is wondering what is the "normal" size range for a breedable follicle in ponies of this size?
    All seem smaller to her than she is used to, and I thought someone here who U/S's their ponies would have an idea?

    Most of our ponies have a follicle that usually ovulates by the next am that is about + - a 40. Some ovulate on a 36 or 38. I don't believe that many ponies, on my farm, make over a 40. I am just speaking size. I have heard of the horses having a 50. Or bigger??

    Ours (at their largest) get around 40-ish as Sandy said.
