The picture of her udders it does not look like she is near foaling, sometimes when mare come into heat their teats will swell alittle. I really don't think from the pictures either of your mares took when they were bred.

I found an equine vet that will travel. He is coming out on Thursday or Wednesday night if he can make it. No ultrasound machine though. She is still acting the part.... no change. Perla the grey has teats /bag (whatever the term) hard and full, no milk but clear fluid and she is one angry little thing if you try to touch her there - before she was a sweetheart. If she is pregnant this would be her first. Also, it will break my heart if Honey isn't pregnant because I think she might be faking it because she wanted a baby so bad. When she lies down she stares at herself. I wonder what she is thinking. Should I go through this again if it turns out she isn't preggers?

Well, my 2 cents is that both mares are indeed pregnant. It seems odd that BOTH mares would be acting this way at the same time. But, then again, I've never personally bred a mare so I don't know. Just my opinion.

I'm glad that you've found a vet that is going to come soon so you can know for sure! It'll definitely ease your mind.

If it turns out both mares aren't pregnant, as long as they are healthy and your able to properly care for the foals, I don't think there is any reason why would couldn't re-breed. Talk to the vet though.
