Maiden mare bagging?

As some of you may remember, I bought my 3.5 yo mare last October that was supposed to be 6 months pregnant (foal in March), but my vet who told me she is not confident in her pregnancy testing skills could not confirm pregnancy via rectal palpation. Well, fast forward to today. Since it is late March, I am paying close attention to any changes in case she may still be pregnant, but not due until April/May (just in case). I noticed today that her teats looked bigger. I also read something about their teats will point downward instead of inward? I don't know if they pointed inward before, but they are definitely downward now and look nothing like my other mare's teats. Of course she looks bigger overall, but she is a growing percheron/qh with a very healthy appetite. What do you think? Can you tell anything by the pictures? Anything else to look for?

If she is pregnant, she doesn't appear close enough to foal. I would be watching for changes in his tail head.

This is probably a stupid question. Do her teats look normal for a non pregnant mare? My hubby's mare's teats are way tucked up and petite compared to my mare. Sorry, I've always considered myself a gelding person until I got this mare and studying teats is new for me.

In the meantime, I'm off to take pics of her tail head so I can keep accurate photos to compare changes.

Hormones can cause that even if she isn't pregnant. My maiden mare did that a couple times.

Yes non pregnant mares can have teats like that as well.

While she eats, it's also a good time to watch for movement of the foal. That's when my baby moves in my mare the most.

Hi all, I've been keeping a close eye on my possibly pregnant mare and noticed she has been going through changes in the past few weeks. Is this what bagging up looks like??
