Has a vet actually checked either of these mares?

Doesn't appear like it. Apparently the pinto mare wasn't supposed to be bred, but the OP's dad "accidentally" threw her in with the stud, too.

We have the mares on pasture, feed, and calf manna. We can't find any hay around here without fescue in it! And yes, I was referring to the b&w walking mare :) She will not let me touch her teats or belly anymore, period. I'm assuming she's just irritated, she's never liked attention!

Hmm, I notice the OP won't answer the question about the vet check? What is with horse owners who do not want to spend the money to have the vet out but want to know when their mare is due, IF she is due, if her stomach makes her look pregnant, when she will foal and wants to know by the photos they send?
My older gelding always looked pregnant....... ALWAYS ... Didn't need the vet to tell me he wasn't.
But, with mares, I am amazed at how many folks won't spend the money to have a vet check, but get online and act all worried and wondering what to do. Get the vet out, have the vet check and A: find out if the mare is even pregnant B: get a clue as to how baby is positioned, and C: do an ultrasound to find out a gestimate of when foaling might occur.

Do you know when they bred?
OMG!! You nailed it girl!!

WELL said!

Best of luck Jenny. No one has a right to judge. A few are rude here. We just ignore them.

Keep us updated.

I hope the foaling(s) go well. I just asked a simple question about a vet checking the mares to see if they are pregnant. Then I asked a question about why people won't call a vet out to check a mare...
I am not being rude... Just curious

Oh but Wyoming-we are having a cute baby! Don't be a bummer and want us to call the vet or something! UGH. Blinders on. I really hope it all goes well for the mares sake, but if, heaven forbid it doesn't, these posters have noone to blame but themselves. Ignorance is bliss.

Agree, but there are other things too-like how about just a fat horse who isn't preggo? Am I willing to lose sleep over that? Not really, but then I don;t have to get my gelding checked, even tho his belly is bigger than some here. Granter he cannot play the full/empty bag game.
