Large udder?

If mare has a large udder, could it be the result of having foaled in the past or being in foal now?

Carolina's udder is tiny. Maggie's on the other hand is huge. I'll try get pics for reference.

I don't know a lot about mares/foals/breeding and whatnot, but if that were a cow, I'd say that Maggie had had a calf at some point in the past, so maybe Maggie has had a foal at some point. My new mare has a largish udder, and she has had foals in the past. Daughter's stallion got to her right after I brought her home (dangit) so I have a feeling I'm about to learn more than I want to!

I was thinking that perhaps she's foaled in the past. When I compare her to Sunny though, our little Shetland whom had two foals, her udder was still small like Carolina's.

I'm hoping it's like a cow udder thing.. cause poor Maggie is just a skeleton I can't imagine any foal being healthy from that.

Maggie definitely looks like she is may be pregnant, has she always been bigger? Or have you just noticed now?

When I got her home last week, her udder didn't look as large as that. In fact when I bathed her on Saturday it didn't look that big. Yesterday when I was applying cowboy magic (the cream fly repellent) she about bounced all over the place when I went to apply it on her tummy. I looked under expecting some kind of wound from that reaction and the enlarged udder is what I saw.

For reference, her previous owner had her 6 months.

Hmm, I don't know. Is there any possible way she could be in foal?

I don't know to be honest. The previous owner had her for 6 months and I'm waiting right now to find out where Maggie was before that.
