I've heard this time and time again. I think maybe the vets err on the side of caution and give a false positive so if the mare is preggers, she will be getting proper care. A vet up here checked out a pony and said, No, she's not pregnant, but just in case, give her some extra feed and call me again in a month! At least he was honest in saying he didn't know for sure. I would hold far more faith in the urine test than what the vets say.

Wow! That's really something. I've NEVER had our vets be wrong about a pregnancy when they check by palpation. I have had them say they didn't know and to recheck in a month or so and then had them rechecked, but they never have been wrong. What did your urine test say? Inquiring minds want to know!
