No not restless, just amazed at how thread after thread this time of year asks the same question: My mare is getting fatter and fatter so must be pregnant. When does it look like she will foal? Not sure when she was with a stallion, but since she is fat, she must be pregnant.. Can anyone help me?
Why not just have a vet check? If a person can't afford a vet check for a pregnant mare, then hopefully they won't need to call a vet for an emergency during foaling or anytime.Not just calling on the phone, cause any REAL vet will not give a foaling date or "alls well, don't worry" when a pregnant mare is involved. I know, we got plenty of those calls daily and when asked if the vet would give advice over the phone concerning issues with foaling mares or pregnant mares with discharge, or whatever, we would say" the vet is not able to give advice about this without seeing the mare"... No vet should give advice over the phone without seeing the mare since the are liable for information given.
However, if they get the vet check, then they can come on board and say" my mare is pregnant, the vet says all is well, lets guess the due date"... Pretty simple.
