Really? You live deep in the Yukon wilderness, and have to use dog sleds to travel? Interesting how you have internet access, since you're obviously so far off the beaten track that there are no vets.

Very interesting. Where do you live. We could probably help you find a vet.

Well, then, if she delivers a foal soon, yes, she was pregnant.

If she doesn't deliver in the next 4 months, then no, she isn't pregnant.

Seriously, a vet check would be your best bet, whether you have an equine vet or not.

Welcome to the forum. I hope you find our folks to be friendly and helpful. As you've already read, the only sure way to tell if your mare is pregnant would be to have a vet out for palpatation or an ultrasound. That being said, when you get closer to time (if she is pregnant) you should be able to feel the foal moving and then of course the waxy build up, or even the milk, but that doesn't happen until end stages.

If your mare was thin or undernourished, this could be a dangerous situation for her and the potential foal, especially without knowing the history of this mare, as in, how old is she? Is she a maiden mare, etc.

You might want to do an internet search for vets in your area, I'd be suprised if there were none available. Good luck!

Yes ur right I do live way up in the mountains,but as long as have a cellphone signal im connected to the internet.many people have horses were I live but when a horse gets sick most people give there horses some sort of over the counter medication and if that deosent work then you call the municiple to make a big hole in your back yard to burry ur horse.sounds cruel but some people actualy do this
