Yep, best bet is to call the vet. That way, they can tell you for sure if she's preggo. If she is, they can also check to make sure both momma and baby are healthy, give you guidelines on how to best care for a pregnant mare, and give you an idea on a due date so that you will have a general time frame to expect.
Plus, IMHO, it is best if the vet is at least somewhat familiar with the mare before foaling, that way, if you do have to call him out during the birth, it won't be for a completely unknown situation.
Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
