Question on mares teats? negative palp 3 months ago

I have a soon to be 10 yr old maiden mare who was bred last in July of last summer. She was checked by my vet by palpation in January and my vet stated she wasnt pregnant. Yesterday as I was grooming her, I noticed her teats area was swollen and also some crust formation was noted. I have attached a picture of her area to see if anyone had an idea what I am looking at? She also was wormed by panacur powerpac several weeks ago but has been rubbing her bum against the barn constantly. I was planning to keep watching to see of any changes and if so, probably contact my vet by the end of the week if so..thanks for any ideas!! ;)

Could we get a body shot to help us see what her stomach looks like? Her bag is pretty small and I would guess it is just spring "in heat" hormones that is making her rub her bum and teats leak a bit.

She would have been around 6 to 7 months along when the vet palpated her...which possibly could have been the time when the foal had slipped behind the pelvic rim, making it unreachable, so the vet could have been wrong.

Our maiden mare looked just like that, only she wasn't ever bred at that time. It might just be hormones. "May" as we call her, was a little grumpy at that time and she was similar to that, but didn't milk up. But, I'd get a blood test done if your not sure. Its kind of hard to tell with out a side picture. Hope to see the pictures though!

The last mare I had bred didn't start to show bad till about 2 months before she was due... She was a maiden mare to. She started off with a really small under to and I found the "stuff" you discribed. As she got closer to her due date, her udder got bigger,

you might be able to "feel" the foal. Push on her belly there where it's pretty big and see if it scoots over.lol. I did this with my mare, the baby was not appreciative and would try to move back and or kick and I could feel it.
