    Foal
    She would be somewhere between 14 and 18 days. It is so upsetting. She said just seconds into the ultrasound that yes she is pregnant, and we were studying the little roundish egg shaped thing, then she went on to look at the rest of her uterus and couldn't find it again when she went back to look for it. She said maybe it was a blood clot or she is just missing it, she did say she has missed them before. She does alot of reprodutive work on TB farms, so she has experience, she just said that since she couldn't find it again she would have to say she isn't pregnant, but please don't sue her if I end up with baby in the spring! LOL! I will try again in a month or so or buy one of the wee foal kits. I also wonder if there are any changes like in mood that could be noticed in a pregnant mare early on?

    I don't know about mood, because my mare was pregnant since I bought her. She is very, very sweet, so I hope she stays that way after she foals, lol! I am guessing that being pregnant stabilizes their mood because they aren't going through heat cycles.

    So I don't know if you can normally tell if your mare is in "season" but that is something you can watch for. Apparently some mares really act moody and show it, but others you can't hardly tell.

    Wish I could be more help! I am just learning my way through this process too! But it sounds like she was kind of early to tell definitely whether she was in foal or not, so if you wait a while and try again, you should know for sure.

    Foal
    Thanks, yep guess that's what I will have to do. My mare usually has the same temperament, and she is still sweet, but she is not finishing all her grain or hay, she likes the grass though.
