I'm thinking the vet had to have been off when he palped her back in March. Cause seriously...then she's like a year if not! When she was dripping milk before did she have a bag at all? What has the vet said about her lack of bag? We all know I'm nothing close of an expert, LOL, but I have read and heard many instances where the mare will suddenly bag and get milk right before or even after foaling.
Well, I'm thinking he said that and given Aprilhas 30 days I just figured maybe we will go by that one. She would be at 349. And what if the owner said ten months but she was like 9-1/2 and she just rounded. So she could just be at 11 months. That's lots of what ifs but is all I have to go on. The vet wanted to check her again 2 weeks ago he said there was a possible induction needed. I asked what would happen if foal wasn't ready!?!?! What if its the dates are wrong. So he said if I see movement and she's not in distress we could wait a few more weeks. Because she's technically not overdue til 371 and since we don't know actual date of breeding.... Well y'all get the picture. My hubby had a mare he said before we met that would not bag up at all until after the baby was here, then very small bag until milk came in. There is no fescue so I don't know what the lady had her on though.... I'm a nervous wreck all the time. But when mother nature decides it is time then it will be time I reckon.

Even if she was a year it's not unheard of...it's just...wow! It seems like everyone I know is having late births. OMG!!! I just realized!!! Including my mare even! I'm pretty sure she was bred around April 4, and she foaled April 3!!!
Lolol, I had actually seen those earlier today....I blame it on lack of sleep xD
Yeah, NewImage's mare went super late last year. My mare was two weeks late and I was on edge the entire time, considering I started her foal watch a couple weeks before her due date! Its got to suck not knowing the due date. Her udder suggests she isn't ready yet, but dang if there aren't mares who foal without one, so who knows! She still look as wide as the pic from February?
