    True, but at least I can stop doubting myself that she is really pregnant, lol! She seems to have held onto this thing so long I keep second guessing if she is just really fat !

    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...?

    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!)

    Nada... just got back from checking on her. She is leaking a bit again and "he" is moving around a lot tonight and pissing mom off, but I don't think she is going to go tonight.

    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.

    Lol.... Foal watch has become such a part of life this summer, we had Cowboy May 2, now "to be named", it is exciting. I am just as excited to see all of your foals hit the ground as I am my own.

    We won't be having any of our own next year, but my uncle will have one, so that is just as good!
