String test suggest circling.

Wax, more jelly. Enjoyed her belly rub especially along the ribs and back. She doesn't even have a crease in her spine.....:(

Viewing from behind, you cannot see her belly what so ever. He's stopped moving and can't be felt now. No different actions, but who knows.

Circling string test suggests a filly, but the string test circled last spring for my sister's maiden mare and she got a colt. And this year the string test goes straight back and forth even though the vet is pretty sure she isn't pregnant. We will see how that turns out soon because if the mare is hiding her pregnancy from the vet (her extra roundness shifts around and is carried forward), she would be just in the safe foaling zone now lol

Isn't there a thing about not being able to see their belly at all from behind they're close? I thought I heard something about that.

Many mares tend to "not look pregnant" or be slab-sided prior to foaling. It is a trend but like all other signs, mares may or may not do this

MLP, I just read where you talked about a crease in her spine. My mare has filled so much to where her spine is indented and sunk in. Is this normal? Did your do this?

I just barely feel a crease. Every pregnancy is different.
