It's very rare ro have a true case of CPD in horse or human. Your mare will grow a baby just right for her body and most likely birth with no problem. I think malpresentation the foal(forms of dystocia etc) is often misinterperited as "big baby syndrome" which leads to the common belief that the foal was "just too big". In reality there is no reliable way to determine whether or not a foal will fit through a pelvis, even after the foal is born. Pelvimitry scans are horribly innacurate and they can't even be relied upon to determine the capacity of the pelvis.
