Is my mare close to foaling?
Im new on this site, so please do not be rude. I tryed yahoo answers but people are incredibly rude. So heres how my mare got pregnant in winter :( we had bought a "gelding" and yes we had a pre-purchase exame and even the vet missed him beimg a cypt orchard. One testicle was in his abdomen but the other had the ability to drop down. So thats how one day our neighbor called us and told us he mounted her, we had him casterated as soon as we could. She should he due any day now but she seems to not be close? She lays down a whole lot at night and her udder is not full. Her hind end has gotten a lot looser and same with her volva. But it seems to me that shes going backwards? For a week it looked like she was going to have it any day ( she was grumpy, drematic change in udder and volva and laying down a lot in day and night) now nothing! Weird right? She has droped more to me but her udder will be there and then it wont. Shes any where from 351-370 days. Yes I know thats a big gap but thats what the vet told us when she first was pregnant checked at 2months.my mare is also a maiden. Anyone have the same experience? And yes she is in a nice warm stall at night and let out in a smaller corral durring the day.Were I live its also pretty warm, hasnt been to cold,and has only rained once.
