Is it just her or...?

Okay so my mare Angel should be about four months pregnant, but I am not really sure because she is acting like she is in heat, she has went three or so months without going in heat so I find it weird that suddenly she is acting in heat. Though the stallion she is with doesn't pay any attention to her, I have been watching to see and when I put her in she goes up to him and nicker and lift her tail and pee and he simply sniffs her and walks away. Though another stud we have lifts his lip and wants at her when I walk her to our round arena so I am just confused, I have seen a lot of mares bred and have never seen any go three months then act like her so I am curious if anyone else has ever had this happen to them. Oh and she has not miscarried or anything like that. Here is a few pictures I took today of her stomach. Beware she could just be chubby....>.> I am exercising her so she loses it, and builds more muscle.



Note : vv In that picture I know a horse should not be tied so loosely, but look at the rope she is not tied I just put it like that so I could take the picture without her following me.

Get a vet check.

A) She WAS bred and then lost/absorbed the fetus.
B) She was never pregnant.
C) She IS pregnant, but a major flirt.

Get her checked, no way can we tell. Possible she lost the foal, or was never pregnant.

Some mares show signs of being in season.

I had one do it through her whole pregnancy at every stud.

You stud might know that she's not really in
And the other stud might just be willing to breed anything that will allow it.

Any of the above.
A palpation is your only way to know for sure.

I am confused - I thought you posted a thread in the last few days about breeding this mare to your stud - has that breeding taken place or is she bred to another stud at this time?

The breeding has already taken place, I put her in with him four months ago.

For A and B, then why isn't my stallion breeding her? When we first put her in he bred her as soon as she allowed it (which was instantly, my horse is a hoe :P) and now he won't so she could just be a tease.

Yeah but if she actually lost it then why is my stallion ignoring her? He has always bred the mares in with him he used to run free with the mares and bred then when ever they were in. (It was before we bought them) That's what I don't get cause I take her out for hours a day so I can work with her then put her back and he walks over and smells then leaves, if she was in heat he would breed her.

Oh I didn't know it was possible for a mare to do that.

That could be it because our stallion she is put in with won't touch her and he has always been one to breed while a mare is in heat.
