OP, your mare will foal when she is good and ready to. without the exact dates she was bred, you just can't predict a date. vets can be wrong. And at this stage its difficult to tell how far along the foal is. And some mares carry longer. NewImages mare went over a year. ButtInTheDirts mare went what...13 months?

Unless she is in dire need of a vet, i wouldn't worry, sit back and relax until that foal is dropped. Then you can worry.

When I had my mare palpitated I asked my vet how far she was and he kindof shrugged his shoulders, I said well according to the girl I got her from she said she was bred in Feb or March...he said yep sounds about right. Well here it mid April and still no foal. Hmm...

That WITCH. She wouldn't come up. So I walked down to the lower pasture w feed. Still wouldn't come up. So I had to walk back get lead rope. Walk back, now this is about 1//2 mile if not more just down there. Lead her back! And put her up. I got my exercise for the month!

if the weather was okay, i would have left her out. they say mares like to wander away when they foal. maybe she just sucked that baby back in because you stalled her. lmao.

Ha! Yeah it's supposed to get very bad. Chance of severe storms and tornadoes. If it calms down I'll let her back out. You can tell she has pressure cause she's squatting without urinating. So more good moves forward anyway.

No need to palpate to check that she didn't lose the baby! That kid is sitting in the birth canal and knocking on the door to get out ROFL

Ok good! And I forgot ems! It's like she is backing up to the gate and holds really still, then it bounces. I even felt it. It's not real strong but, it's there. It's not her muscles its weird !
