Bells Pregnancy not showing

I have a 4 year old black TWH I will post picks she is due to foal in june but isn't showing. This is her first foal and this is the first time I've had a pregnant mare. I bought Bell and the man told me her bred her. I saw the stallion a 30 year olf bay TWH his other mare was bred to the same stallion and showing nicely. Any advice to help ease my mind as to if she's in foal or not. SHe doesnt like to be around our geldings she kicks them if they get in her personal space.

Have her checked by your vet. They should be able to tell you yay or nay.

Your best bet is calling a vet and having her palpated.

(I hope the pics work)
My parents don't want to because they don't want to pay a vet bill I'm still unsure as to weather she's showing or not from the pics.

These are a couple (If they worked if not I don't know how to get them on)

Your pictures aren't showing. Right click on the picture and click Copy Image Location and then try post them.

But the only way to know is to have a vet check. A palpation is the cheapest. Call your vet, ask what the cost would be if she were hauled to them (saves on the cost of a farm call), and tell your parents what the actual vet check costs. It may surprise you that it may be much cheaper than your parents realize. This is just one of the expenses of owning a bred mare, good luck

Hmm I'd be surprised if she was pregnant........but not the greatest pictures.....plus don't know what she looked like before to note any changes in her shape and size.

I would have a vet palpate her or do a blood test......this will be the least of your costs if she is pregnant....she should have at least $500.00 put aside for pre and post foaling care.....as well as $2000.00 for any emergencies that might crop up.
