Keep us posted on the test and how easy it is to work with if you use it. Sounds like she is quite big in belly and if grumpy I would give a guess. Have you checked her udder for any changes?

Yes I have, when I got her, they where small and shriviled. But now they are getting bigger and more full. Im guessing that's a sign too. But I thought that they don't change until the last month.

There is a test that you can purchase online and test your mare's urine to determine if she is pregnant or not. www.foalproof.com

If she tests pregnant, you still need to get with your vet as vaccinations and deworming schedules for your mare change to help provide better protection for the foal. Mare's generally need to be boostered against everything about 1 month prior to foaling, be vaccinated with Pneumobort K at 5, 7 and 9 months in their pregnancy and be dewormed regularly and dewormed within 24 hours of foaling to help prevent the transfer of parasite directly through the mare's milk to the foal.

Yes, you are right, if I remember correctly her udders shouldn't be filling until her last month. Is she in her last month?! We had a mare come to our barn that these people had just bought, and about 8 or 9 months later they noticed her barrel was pretty large. We just figured with the weather being bad she had just gained weight. Turns out she was in her 11th month! Her previous owner had tried to breed her but didn't think it took. You could actually see her flanks moving when the foal moved. If you lift her tail the vulva should be droopy-er (is that a word?), and her udders started to get bigger about a month before she foaled. I think around a week or so before she foals she'll get this waxy covering over her teats. Don't squeeze them to see if they're full! The first thing that comes out of their udders is colostrum which is crucial for the foal's health and you don't want to 'waste' any of it. I would recommend a pregnancy test. If you try and palpate (stick your hand in there) too close to the end of the pregnancy they can abort the baby.

Oh, Tara, that would suck if Grace was pregnant.

Ohmygoodness. Her vulva is very droopy, its been like that since i'v bought her......im guessing I should bring her inside now? She is a pasture horse, she refused to eat when she comes in. But I guess she will have to live.
