Hi lj

You really want to avoid testing right after a break in any overnight or other fast of longer than 4 hours or so. It sounds like you are okay here.

Since the hormones can fluctuate during the day, most of us try to take the blood at the same time each time so you can better compare where the horse is at the same time of day.
