Well I'm not a vet and I don't even play one online but she doesn't look bred to me. Could be wrong though.

Palpation

After hearing what happened to a horse (My riding instructors) when she was palpated I am unsure and will wait out the time if she does have a foal I will post pics she is supposed to be due in June. My insturctor bred a mare and had her palpated but the vet tore the tissue inside the mare and she had to be put down.

That's unfortunate. But you should still get her tested. There's a blood test that can be done if you don't want her palpated. Or an ultrasound.

She doesn't look bred to me.

Does anyone know if the pregnancy tests would work at this late date?

I don't think she's bred either.

The only one I know of is a blood test and it can be done now.......it actually is not accurate I believe until they are at least a 100 days along.

That is a rare horror story. Most experienced vets (especially specialized equine vets) will not be a risk to your mare. I am sure that horror stories could be found of any practice, check up or routine care if you looked hard enough. I could find horror stories of OBGYNs if I wanted to, but that doesn't mean I wouldn't look for one I trusted to care for me during pregnancy. If you trust your vet, I see no reason to not palpate. IMO

GOOD LUCK

Then WHY would you post old pictures of her and ask if anyone thought she was pregnant?

I'm beginning to think there's either something seriously wrong with you, or you're just playing us all for fools.

Someone said they don't know what she looked like before, so they wouldn't be able to tell the difference in her body shape. That's why she posted an older pic, not because there is something seriously wrong with her, geez.
