Yes, your vet can help!


Some mares never show signs of heat. Does she show any other obvious signs of being pregnant? If she is pregnant to the point of dripping milk she would look pregnant.

well her bellys big, we thought it was a hay belly or a wormy belly and that was ruled out. I'm going to call my vet today

Some horses just drip from time to time - we used to have a member here who's horse was pretty much lactating at all times. Is her udder big and full, or just normal and dripping? How long have you had the mare? I agree with Alwaysbehind - get her checked out by your vet asap. If she's pregnant, and to the point she's dripping milk, she's likely due to foal very soon.

Depending on how long backed your mare is, she might not look as big as the horse in the picture - the mare's body shape plays a big part in how she carries and I've seen some mares ready to foal that hardly looked pregnant, other who looked like their belly was practically dragging the ground.

Good for you getting the vet out to check. Let us know what they say!

oh I kno I have a 16 hand mare in which I traded for, she has now all of a sudden showing all the signs and waxing, all mares are diffrent. Best thing to do is keep an eye on them
