Can horses have false pregnancy?
OK, I posted earlier about my mare urinating a lot. My next big question is can horses have a false pregnancy? Her teats are getting larger by the day and still urinating a lot, pregnancy would be the natural thing here. How ever she does not have a pregant stomach and if anything a little thin for my taste and we've been trying to put weight on her. We've had her for three weeks now no known history. The person we got her from got her at a sale a month before we got her. She is a great mare, but no matter what this is we need to address it properly. If false pregnancy well I don't know what to do for that, never heard of a horse having it. If she is I'm concerned about her weight, but don't want to put to much on her or foal be to big. Happened to me one time had a mare in foal the owner I bought her from was to keep the foal. She got her at a certain period in pregnancy feed her up to make a big foal and it damaged my mares hips forever. That is what the vet told us the reason for her odd gait she didn't have before and we were told it was because of the way she was feed.
