310 days would you say???

I have a horse whos a dropoff. Vet said couldn't tell how far along but might be 310 days or so. What do you think?? Dixie had grown ALOT he said that most horses foal between 320-340 days?? What would you say. I felt the baby kick 4 times yesterday and about died. i've noticed she's relaxed alotin the botton part of her vulva not sure if that means anything. She has no utter develepmet soim hoping thatsnot abad thing. I just want so tips or something.

Also I am to believe she's a madien mare

The only way to get a good clue of gestational age, if you don't have a breeding date, is an ultrasound. This is what I ended up doing with my mare Freyja, last year, as was recommended to me by Tealamutt, another forum member here. Freyja was pasture bred and the seller had no clue she had even been re-bred, so there was no clear idea on dates. I got her U/S to get a gestational age, because she was showing a lot of signs (relaxation of the tail head, udder development, etc) and the ultrasound showed her to be only around day 295...she just showed signs early. She actually went on to carry 360 days before foaling, even with the early signs. I'd recommend getting an U/S to get a clear gestational age of the foal, if the breeding date isn't known.

Well,i would do the U/s but the vet said when he came out he charged 150 for the visit and and said 1,000 for U/s. And I can't do that right now. The vet I used to look her over doesn't come out my way anymore and that sucks cause I loved her.

Btw forgot to post picz

Seriously? $1000 for an ultrasound? Good grief! What general area are you located in? That is insane for an ultrasound.

We are in the boons hahaa but the horses a located in a rich area so everything is pricey. That's one reason why I wish my old vet didnt leave. Her U/s was like 150? I think? :/ loved her to death......

That is really very high for an ultrasound. Mine was by no means cheap but no where near that high. Are you sure that is your only vet option? I would want to make an effort to know. If she is really only about 310 days, and she did go into labor this early, the survival rate of the foal is pretty low. Even at 320 days the chances aren't that great.

Yeah I will look around.... I might ask one of my friends about her vet she used. She's not that far from me. But last time her horse foaled was about 2-3years ago??

If you can give us a general area, we would be more then willing to help research vets in that area.

Phone calls are free. Call all the vets office and let them know that she is a drop off and that you would like to do an ultrasound on her but you aren't rich. Most vets will work with you.

I agree.

There are lots of good googlers on this site.


My vet is far from cheap and they do not charge any where near $1000 for an ultrasound.
Heck, my personal ultrasound did not cost that much.
