    Yeah, we may have awhile. May be tonight, may be a month who knows. But I don't understand how a vet and previous owner can be about 2 weeks different and still be wrong? But someone said on here a mare went to like 416 and was still good. So, it will all be fine.

    Palpation late in pregnancy is never 100% on the due dates and can be really off.

    This is a good spot for info on "overdue" and a little bit about why a horse shouldn't be induced. Is my mare overdue?

    I knew not to induce, but glad you posted that link. Since later foals may be smaller you think that's why she's isn't so big? I think we are getting there just waiting now for he/she to be ready.

    That's a good possibility. Is there a chance that she lost it and the foal's body was dragged off by scavengers? I'm not sure what you have in your area or how likely that possibility is.

    We have high amounts of coyote. When I watch her it looks as though there is a foal in there, she watches her side's and often bites and kicks at her belly. It's not as powerful as it was but more of a slow roll, like start at the hip end at the bottom flank kinda poked out looks like a human elbow kinda thing.

    I think if it were mine I would call the vet back out, just for my own piece of mind 😉

    Guess I'll call around. My vet says unless she's in distress no need for him to come out. That's the only reason he's not been back out. But I've been in contact with him lots. I'll let y'all know If I can get one out, or if I lie andjust tell him she's in distress.

    I would tell him she has been in distress and she still hasn't made a bag, but all other signs are there.... He shouldn't mind coming out... He's making money

    As long as she's not in distress now, she's fine. Is she's eating... No much. Is she rolling and acting like she's colicing... No. We knew she probably wouldn't make a bag. So not a concern. What I'm seeing is probably false labor. Mares have been doing this for years, he can't come out until after hours. And unless I feel it is an absolute emergency, which he feels it's not he will wait until Monday to come out.

    Well Monday is better than nothing and at this point it really isn't a ZOMG MUST BE OUT NAOW! Type deal like colic or delivery complications would.

    Keep us updated on what he says.
