Any udder development? Sagging in her vulva?

Foal
Yes to both, her udders have dropped and I can cup everything in my hand and all the loose skin and udder fills my hand. Although she isn't producing milk, I can squeeze out a drop of clear fluid. She has the big lump in front of the the udder as well. Here they call it the umbilical, the gland or whatever that stretches down her belly to her udders it is distended and hard. After last Sunday her vulva is loose and saggy a lot more than normal. When she is lying down it opens about an inch. When she is standing up it is sunken back and wrinkly. If this is a false pregnancy, does anybody know when she will stop, or if I should be trying to do something. I could arrange to have a stallion brought out to see if anything happens, He is a little guy I bred my welsh too and was very sweet, didn't kick/bite. Would that be a dangerous Idea?

I wouldnt bring the stallion in. Bred mares can still show heat and allow to be bred.. which can sometimes result in an aborted foal. Allt he things you mention sound like she is close (within two weeks. Just keep an eye on her

Hi there I know this mare, Sara and I are friends I actually helped ship the horses with Sara from my place here in BC to Honduras 5 yrs ago , and I was just in Honduras with Sara 2 mths ago thinking that Honey was going to foal ! With no vets available out there it is a very difficult situation,i certainly had my doubts when I was there that neither Honey or Perla were in fact pregnant,, especially as the due dates were supposed to be at the time we were there ,,,they both had little bellies ,,, Honey actually did look more pregnant then than she does now !!! I was so sure that Sara was way out of whack with her breeding dates, but sadly not ,,,, knowing this mare I really do feel that the Sunday night she was down in her stall, was in fact Honey's false birth with a tad of colic,, I asked Sara to go up to the barn and take a picture of Honey a week later and send it to me,,,and that is the last picture that is posted ,, she certainly looks like a normal Honey to me, and knowing how profound to put it politely Honeys heat cycles are !!!!! As in being the sleaze of any Barn she may be at !!!!!,,, I really do feel that she had a false pregnancy ,, I did send the last picture to my vet who also said no way is that mare 11 or 12 mths preggers !!!! But having said all this,,, I AM NOT A VET and don't profess to be one,,, I just hope that Honey remains Happy and healthy as she is the love of Sara's life , and her dream always was to let her have a foal ,,, but Honey's well being has and always will be the priority ,,, the have covered a lot of ground together,, I love you Sara and I am proud of what you do out there with those horses and children, and extremely proud to be able to say you are one of my Students and great friend of mine .

This made me smile! Horses are most certainly a gift... Its amazing the power they have that not only brings people together, but also just brightens your day. I have met some brilliant people through my horses. Many of them life long friends!

Angie, we were supposed to continue pretending we didn't know each other so we could comment on what great horsewomen we must be, and with such great knowledge.... now we are busted! Anyway... we are going to organize somebody to do a rectal check, it is really hard for me to say she isn't pregnant yet. Especially what are the chances of both her and Perla being little fakers. Is there any information about Mare supplements causing false pregnancies? I took a bunch of photos of her today... If this is a false pregnancy when will she stop carrying on?
