Exclamation Advice needed

So my Mare, Teea was put with a Stallion in March 2011 and her latest due date was the 21st of March (as the mares were in the paddock for a few weeks).

I sware she was infoal to him when we took her to the one of our front paddocks. But now im not so sure and this is why...

My housemate comes upto me the other day while i was out talking with Teea telling her to pop already and Tamara says that she dont think she is infoal anymore as she found a fetus apparently 8 months ago (but it only would have been 3-4 months max ago). So she went months without tell me that she had found a fetus cuz she was scared it was her mares foal. But when her mare foaled (8 weeks ago), she STILL didnt tell me!! And only just told me when she is past her LATEST due date (21st March). And she knew i was really excited about it and it was the only thing i was looking forward too!!
I know Maiden mares can go 4-6 weeks over...

Call a vet and have your mare checked.

Ditto on the vet check. We cant help you, only a vet can.

Its impossible for us to even make an educated guess.

If there are only 2 bred mares in the pasture, one foals, the other hasnt. But a roommate says she found a fetus in the pasture months ago. With the one mare foaling, the other not, kinda seems like the answer very well may be thay the mare isnt in foal. That is, if the person isnt lying for whatever weird reason.

Im not sure why anyone would be that cruel.

But thats not someting we could answer, or ever attempt to think to answer. We dont know whose fetus it was, we dont know if your mare is pregnant. Have someone else call the vet and wait with your horse, and wire them the money for it. not sure how you are expecting someone to actually give their opinion?
