Smile Does my mare look pregnant?

We have just bought a horse earlier on in the year. We've just recently been noticing that her abdomen is looking very big and hanging quite low. It cant be a grass belly because of the bad weather the grazing has been poor. Other changes indicate that she could be pregnant such as a vein accross her underbelly and speckles on her teats along with a yellowish substance on the end of her teats, but she doesnt seem to have bagged up yet. Also her back end seems more relaxed. We thought about it for months because she hasnt been in heat and has been very off with the rigs in our field. We got in touch with the previous owner to find she was covered last year but she had her scanned and said nothing was there and thats when she decided to sell her to us. The vets are really expensive and we dont really want to spend a load of money if it there isnt a possibility of her being pregnant. Heres a few pictures if you could tell us what you think it would be greatly appreciated.

Online Equine Pregnancy Test - Is my horse pregnant?

Seriously though, no one online can tell you if your mare is pregnant or not. Call a vet.

She looks like she could be to me but you need to call a vet.
They can usually tell you how,far along she is and possibly get the shots they need to have at certain stages of the pregnancy
