So, I just talked to the vet. I really do like him. He said when he palped her he could have been off and her even just been 8 months. He was just going by feeling of size, info given, and such. But, he said there is no way at all she was any less than 8 months. Period!!!! He said he could get to the baby fine and given its size he felt 100% she was at least 8 months. But, he also feels 50% that she was at least 10 1/2 months at that time also just due to how easy he could feel the baby. But, just be patient give her time and she would foal when ready. They said if I wanted to come get swabs and swab her backend myself and bring it in thy would run for tests for infections and such.( since I lost my job he said they would allow this to cut cost)(also I worked in healthcare so I know sterile procedures)( and its not hard to swab something and stick it in a tube) He said that she is probably a mare that is just really well lubed most of the time. He said mares have been known to not foal until day 380. So he said buckle down, watch her, be patient, and most of all keep an eye on her just not to much an eye ;) , and when the foal is ready it will come. But, he said that I can call him anytime even on his emergency number if I have questions or concerns that he would talk me through them and that if I really wanted him to come out he would. But, at this time felt it not an issue that he needed to see her for. So I guess the uncontrollable crying the vet tech had to deal with makes me sound as much like a crazy women as anything.
