how long has ruby got ?????????

Hiya im new to the horse world and foaling please ne advice would be great
I bought a mare in November people on the yard told me she was pregnant so I called the vet out he did blood tests and they came back negative so I carried on with her as normal months went by and her weight gain was unreal and she's not a greedy horse at I called the vet back for some advice he said if she was over 100days pregnant at the time he did the bloods then there's a chance that they where incorrect and she possibly is in fact pregnant and to just wait and see she should only have 4wks left. Any way we needed a black smith 2wks ago and we asked his advice and he said yes she is defo in foal I give her 3wks max. So now she is enormousness and eating everything in site her belly looks like its dropped and her vulva looks larger than it did a few wks ago last wk there was a mustard y colour blob of paste type substance in her straw and to day in the 3rd wk of the black smith tellin me she had 3wks left she had a white/cream sticky looking discharge coming from her vulva how long would you say she had left her appetite is still huge she hasn't bagged up yet but that can be normal so I've been told ??????

Have you had the vet out recently? Id be nervous about the discharge.

Last I knew, farriers werent qualified veternarians...

And theres no way anyone on here can tell you what you want to know unfortunately.

Well if he did eCG testing and she was over 130 days she would have tested negative. An estrogen sulphate test if you still suspected PG would have given you the info you needed. If you figure 130 from when tested that gives a estimated average due date of sometime in June but horses go over and not always by just a week or two. They can go over by as much as 8 weeks though 4 is more common putting you in July. The discharge would worry me. I'd call the vet.
