The present study aimed to evaluate ovarian changes and its relation to oxidative stress during early postpartum period in Arabian horses. Further, the predication of conception according to the relationship between sonographic and biochemical changes analyses. Ultrasound imaging of follicular changes and oxidative analyses changes were investigated at day 7-9 postpartum whereas Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC) curves were used to determine the ability of oxidative stress and ultrasound imaging to predict the conception rate. ROC analyses indicated that nitric oxide predicate the conception rate with sensitivity (79% P
