Not restless....it just occurred to me to mention about twins because I just read a thread where a maiden mare had twins and both the twins died after much struggle by the mare. The mare was lucky to survive.

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.

Not restless....just wishing people would take proper care. It gets old after a while, to keep saying CALL A VET! (or in these cases, when vets should have checked these mares months ago.) I love to see a baby just as much as the next person, which is why I come to these threads, before y'all ask. But also believe in giving mom and baby the best chance possible. There are just so many things that can go wrong.

Right in her first post on this thread she says that she's not sure when the mare was actually bred, as she's a "shy breeder", won't breed with anyone watching and she was in with the stallion for at least a couple of months. She said she is sure the mare is pregnant because she didn't come into heat in May, so it had to be in March or April. No mention is made of the vet confirming the mare as being in foal and giving an estimated due date. The OP is guesstimating when the mare might be due based on her observations.

Who, don't forget, was "accidentally" tossed in with the stud by the OP's dad. *headdesk*

Exactly.
And she has called the Vet twice since she was seen. The Vet, being a professional, I would think would ascertain whether a visit was warranted and respond accordingly. Unless I'm missing something, the OP is attempting to pin down a potential foaling date based on her mare's present symptoms, due to an unknown conception date as a result of pasture breeding.
This is the original post's focus.
It is not up to any of us to judge whether or not her horses are "breed-worthy." She didn't ask that, and she has every right to breed two horses she loves to keep the resulting foal.
She also has had a Vet out and is in contact with the Vet regularly. Haranguing her for not having a Vet out when she's had a Vet out is ridiculous..
There's a way to educate and suggest that helps and informs people, and there's a way to do just the opposite.

Just went through all twelve pages of this thread. The only time a vet was mentioned was on page 8 when I suggested she have the vet out to look at the TWH mare to see if she is indeed in foal, and then on page 9 where the OP says they'll "probably" have the vet look at the TWH mare when the first mare foals.
