Beau my maiden mare and her pregnancy progress

This is Beau she is 5 years old in a weeks time and in theory she is almost 7 months pregnant to a liver chestnut section D stallion. I havn't had her scanned but I think I might in the next few weeks because I want to be sure. She has a pot belly but the rest of her is still nice and trim.
Any thoughts?
Anyone have any pics of their mares at 7 months?
Also when do people stop riding their pregnant mares?
This is my first time breeding. Beau is my pride and joy and I can't wait to see her foal (If she is definitely pregnant lol)

Day she came back from stud:

1 month in:

2 months:

3 months:

6 months:

almost 7 months:

Can I just ask why did you not have her scanned when she returned from the stud? We would have always scanned mares at 21 days to 1) check they were indeed in foal and 2) make sure there weren't two in there!

She doesn't look to have a large belly, in fact if my eyes aren't playing tricks on me she looks heavier at the 2 months photo than the most recent. Saying that, she is a maiden mare and I would get a vet out to check her right away.

Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.

The 2nd photo was taken in the summer so she was a fair bit bulkier all over. We didn't get her scanned because she went to stud late in the season so wouldn't have been able to return to the stallion if she hadn't been successfully covered. She is being scanned in the next couple of weeks.
