Question Possibly pregnant, Just purchased.

Ok, heres the deal. 2 days ago I purchased a gray mare approx 10-13 years old. I don't think the people were truthful on her though. You can tell she has had foals in the past but on her udder closest to her belly it seems to be filling up and when I squeeze her nipples a clear to yellow sticky fluid is expressed. I know this is normally a sure sign of a mare being pregnant BUT heres the tricky part, She has no baby belly looking from the sides or front/back. I will get pix today of her and her udder and post them. Just looking for opinions because its been too long since I have personally had a mare in foal and was not expecting preg check expenses due to being told she has not been around a stallion of any sort so I wont have the money to get her checked by a vet until late next week but I also know they didnt have her very long. It may be a couple hours before I can get the pix but I will get them. Thanks ahead of time

There are mares that will bag, express fluids, sometimes even milk and not be pregnant. Better safe than sorry and get a vet check.

Ok, That is very good to know. I will keep a close eye on her and try to borrow the money to get her checked sooner just in case.

Same with my mare. After her last baby she just kept filling up for a good while even after not having a baby on her for almost a year. Could be hormones. Never hurts to check. :)

The mare that I posted about being over protective, did not show until recently. In fact I rode her until the middle of March at least 2 times a week and 4-5 miles each time. I did not suspect she was in heat until the 36 inch girth was too tight. LOL She foaled last Wed.
I was about to send her to be trained for barrels and perhaps sold.
Have her checked. Shalom

Thankfully Prissy is not pregnant! Had her checked just havent had time to post. The vet said her bag is due to the hormones in the grass. Also found out that the old owners foundered her but she will recover just fine as its only a mild case and I was right when I told the old owners flat out that she was way older than 7, she is 16 but she is still in her prime and getting more and more healthy everyday!
