I doubt a human pregnancy test would be effective. Not sure how much scans and bloodtests are in your area - why don't you just call a vet and find out? The vet is really the only conclusive way to know if she's pregnant - I believe if she was covered in April she should have been scanned once or twice already to make sure she doesn't have twins in there.

Try weefoal test, you'll have to google it. It's a horse pregnancy test. They are $30. Human pregnancy tests don't work. The cost of a blood test or scan depends on your area really.

100% Anti-Slaughter and PROUD of it!

This seems to have been an intentional breeding?? If so, I would hope you would have put a bit more thought and research into it than to think a human pregnancy test would function correctly. Human based tests are designed to detect a hormone associated with human pregnancy - they will not work correctly on non-humans. There are tests designed for the hormonal changes associated with horse pregnancies -ie WeeFoal. As for blood testing and scans, the prices vary from region to region and vet to vet, the best approach is to contact your vet and inquire directly with them. Having a good relationship with your vet is going to be key in a healthy pregnancy and delivery for your mare.
