That's a very good point. We had the vet give her vaccinations that are safe for pregnant mares, got a Mare and Foal suppliment, and, of course, have her on a regular deworming schedule...... just in case. The vet didn't seem to be at all concerned about her birthing randomly in a 40-acre field, which is bizarre. I have a couple of other vets' numbers on hand (there is no one else that is remotely close). I'm hoping she will be good in a pinch. But, I will follow your advise and request a visit for an ultrasound on Monday. I am getting concerned that, although Blakely has become the alpha mare since she came, she has never gone into heat, been moody, or overly aggressive. Just lately, she mercilessly gouged up our sweet yearling (she kicked him several times, until he was cornered, on his knees trying to back away, and bleeding). Before then, they were inseperable. All of the horses seem to be edgy and afraid of her now.... understandably. Hopefully, the vet will give us good news. I will keep you posted.
