I'm a first time pregnant mare owner, I think. I was told she was confirmed in foal for the end of April, but here we are, close to the end and she has swollen nipples but not really an udder, she seems big but I've heard of hay bellies giving the prego look. She is round, seems to be slowly dropping I think but I think she should have more of an udder and be larger, although I understand not all mares are the same. I'm thinking I should call my vet, probably shoulda done it when I got her last week but she's been so scared and skittish. She came from a Mennonite family (nothing against them) I just don't think they paid a lot of attention to her. Just by looking at her do you think more hay belly or pregnancy? I watch her a lot and I swear I see kicking and sometimes she will be resting on 3 legs and she jumps or shudders and just stays resting. Sometimes it looks like a rolling action, others it's more like kicking, which is when she shifts, sighs or jumps.
Note: I've only had her a week, although there is a large round bale in the picture, she doesn't get it all the time and was mainly to get her where it was dry due to constant rain past week. I asked the old owner how much she got of hay but I forgot what she said haha, I don't think it was a lot though.
