Mare has a hard bag
I went out to check my mare tonight after work, I got off at 11:30 p.m., and was at the stable soon after. I just felt like since it was nice outside, I should visit, so I did. Anyways, I was checking her and feeling her tummy and when I felt her bag it was hard. Is this normal? Why would it be hard like this? I massaged it for a bit to see if it was just something that I could break up, and this seemed to help a little bit, but it didn't really make much of an impact. I am worried about this! Help please :)
Also, her belly has practically exploded compared to what it was just 2 weeks ago...it is huge. She has started carrying her tail to the side and she is more or less getting tired more quickly. Is she getting closer? She still has 4-6 weeks according to the vet, and her butt hasn't started to relax yet, but could she still be close?
