You're going to think I just threw a bucket of cold water, but I don't think that she is pregnant. =( **don't throw that shoe at me!!!**
Horses, like women, don't go more than a few weeks after the expected due date without serious problems.
Plus, she would look like she swallowed a house, if she was really due right now. Are you sure...? https://www.google.com/search?q=preg...&bih=605&dpr=1
Yes, the vet confirmed, she just said she was not as far along as I was told. She is producing colostrum and is a bigger mare, and last year's colt is not big, so I am not expecting a big baby. This is the problem with pasture breeding, can't be sure on the "take" date! (no shoe throwing here, dogs would take off with them!)
I hate to agree with everyone else, but I have doubts about the mare being pregnant as well. I don't see a pregnant belly there. When was the ultrasound done? I understand not having an exact date when its pasture breeding you get, but she really doesn't look pregnant to me.
Mind you I have seen a mare said to not be pregnant by vet done ultrasound, and it turned out a filly was magically on the ground one morning(true story-friend's horse). This could be an unusual case as well. Im very curious on this one.
MsLady... bored... what is this thing called "bored"??? I have a husband, a kiddo, 4 dogs, 2 cats, 5 horses, am taking care of my mom's house and animals, work 4 12 hour days, and the days I am not working I am training my colt, running errands, and cleaning. I am lucky to get 6 hours of sleep a night, lol.
My2Geldings... you are not the first person to think that and if I did not know better I would tend to agree. Since the vet came out and checked her out when she floated my geldings teeth, I am going with her belief that she is just not as far along as she should be.
Sarahb87... me too. I will be taking both mares to be bred (but haven't decided which of 2 stallions since the breeder has 2 gorgeous paints). This breeder only hand breeds, so at least there will be no question on breed date, lol.
