Exclamation Is my mare pregnant?

Hello you all!
I have a wonderful Polish Arabian mare and I bred her to a beautiful red Quarter horse - pasture breeding.
I left her there for two weeks when she started showing singns of "heat".
So, about 300 day's have passed and I really need a second opinion on her pregnancy. I am "new" at this - foal/pregnancy thing - and I am not sure whether she is preggers' or not.
Her udders did not "drop" (or grow) yet, but she did gain a lot of weight.
Thank's to all!
P.S.... I would put pics on, but I don't know how to on this web.
If any-one could help, it would be lovely!!!

Did you ever have her checked by a vet to even confirm she was in foal?

About the only ways to know for sure if a mare is pregnant is to have a vet check her and/or you see feet coming out of her...

This is her... This after noon...
And, no I didn't get her chaked by a vet. A real good friend of mine who has been around horses most of his life sed she is pregnant. But I just wanted a second opinion.

So you went 300 days without even knowing whether she was pregnant or not? So she hasn't received any kind of vet care?

When in doubt, call your vet

Another vote that it is time to call a vet.

Since I have to assume you do your own vaccinating since you have not had a vet out at all in the last year do you not think it is a good idea to at least have a relationship with a vet in case something goes wrong during foaling?

I'm on the vet band wagon. Your mare also needs some good quality meals. That foal is going to draw a lot of nutrition away from her and she is already thin. She'll drop even more weight once she's nursing.

1: Vet. 2: More nutrition. 3: She is either pregnant or has a load of worms.

How old is your mare? Did you have a pre-breeding exam done? She definitely needs more food before she gives birth (if she is preg)
