I have a 5 1/2 year old cob mare who I think may be pregnant. A rectal was done last week which came up negative however the vet said it wasn't always reliable so also took bloods. We should get those back on tuesday. In the meantime I'm going mental not knowing!!!
If she is then she was got last spring, I only recently found out there was a stallion next door at the yard she was on (we've since moved). She is fat however has been loosing weight nicely as she's been on a pretty strict diet. As she's lost weight she's being growing in her belly and she also started developing her udders. She is a maiden and there are no pregnant or lactating mares anywhere near us. I keep an eye on her weight by measuring her girth and length and since her belly appeared to be growing I've also measured her belly. She's dropped around 20kg in the last couple of weeks (around 5cms of her girth measurment). Her belly has incresed by about 7cms in the last 4 days!
This is her aged 4
This is her today and what her udders look like - most of the filling is just infront of the actual teats and udders but the top of those are also filling out and she's also producing a small amount of a clearish yellow fluid if milked (I'm not doing this lots, just once or twice)
