The bottom line is that it's impossible to tell until a vet says one way or the other. I worked with a mare once that my employees and I swore was pregnant. Vet said nope. She carried to one side, and bagged up, even acted like she was going to foal one night. Nope, she was just fat, and had probably been a broodie for too many years.

I did call the second vet. Unfortunately that vet is no longer taking new patients. I don't have a trailer so I can't take her somewhere. Don't know anybody who does have a trailer. My vet is over two hours away from me. I agree that I will not know for sure until the vet comes out, which is basically what I said in my first post. You did come off as rude. If you didn't mean to sound rude then I apologize but I did sense sarcasm in your post. Let's just leave it at that. This is something that is rather silly to argue over. Don't you think?

Really? And what about when you only have one or 2 equine vets in your area and neither are available? This isn't an emergency so as Joe stated earlier, if an emergency does arise, their appointment will be moved. A second vet isn't guaranteed to be able to see her any earlier.

Oh, and PLEASE correct your signature!!!!

It should be: Never think YOU'RE better THAN others, because you WILL look like an IDIOT in the end.

yes good!!...it was sarcasm, if you look closley at my pic it's of my stud star.....man I thought I lived out in the boon docks but 2 hours away from a vet....ouch!!! I don't charge for the use of my 3 trailers that I own, if my need it they ask.....if I have to haul it for them then they pay my gas....when boarding back when I lived in canada it was pay for this pay for that..oh you got billed for this....i swear to god they charged you for letting your horse breath in there barn.
I've been on this forum for so many years (don't know where the oldies went who would have my ass on this one) over time it got to a point were it was happening daily...you have to under stand my point of view....if you can not aford a vet then you shouldn't have a horse....But it seem's like you have every thing in order with vets. But most who turn around and say that they can't aford the vet call..it's heart braking to the people who read this..... hey advice to any one who thinks there mare might be pregnant and want to post a pic ....how about putting this under a header like some thing like this"mare might be pregnant what signs should I be looking for?" .....and no no no my stud isn't pregnant he's just really fat!!!! Other thing too is that you have put your horse in to a better place, where if a horse has had nothing in a long time will tend to gain wieght and look that way, when I bought bell our appy filly this spring, luna my daughter horse tried nursing her all the time and gained about 150 pounds doing it.

I think what Amarea was getting at was that the grammar is incorrect.

Vets are available when they are available. Not every vet will come out of their area, and not everyone is confident in driving a trailer.

We don't have anything that could pull a trailer with. We do have a big conversion van that we were told could pull it as long as we go slow enough but we don't have a hitch on it..yet. A trailer is definitely on our get list for next year. Unfortunately we are pushing it with the vet because we spent a lot of money getting this house horse ready and we've got four kids to buy Christmas for. The money is actually coming from my new saddle savings... dang it.

Well while I understand everyone wanting you to get a vet out there...in 2 weeks, is she going to be any more or less pregnant than she is now? If she's not pregnant, good! If she is, OH well...looks like she's way past the point where you could abort safely. 2 weeks is 2 weeks. Its not going to change the outcome.
