That's why they are so small! They get "over-cooked" in the womb ;)

My horse was recently moved to a new barn. She now shares her pasture with a chestnut mini. It's the cutest thing ever and she is totally obsessed with the little guy. I'll see if I can find a pic.

I am so excited! I will know by 1pm if my mini is in foal. I found a vet that will be here around 12:30 today and will U/S if he can. (He said she may be to small.)

Yay. That's great news. I will check back for an update.

No u/s was done but he did insert a hand into her rectum and inspected the uterus for pregnancy. He said he would have to say she was not in foal although he was not 100 percent certain. It was difficult to reach back in there. For now this is the end and she will be returning to cart pulling the little ones this summer.

And what about all that movement showing on the video you posted? Is there still movement? If she's not in foal, then what is it?
    03-26-2014, 10:36 PM
My regular vet said he saw movement also, actually he said the foal was active in October. My son-in-law is still thinking she is because he saw the movement too. I don't know what to believe anymore. I am going to watch her for a while longer. I think time will still tell me my answer. This vet today even got a handful of fluid from her udder. She shouldn't have that either. Her last foal was born July 2012, shouldn't she be dry.

I know phantom pregnancy's can fake fluid (well the fluid is real enough) though I don't see how they would possibly fake movement.

I will probably make myself sound like an idiot, but how is she too small for an ultrasound? Isn't it external? If anything shouldn't be too small for a physical exam?

I would get one of those tests personally..

Pretty sure these are what I've heard recommended.

Equine Diagnostics, LLC

It says through day 300, but I assume it does work after that and just assumes it's obvious if she's in foal or not? Worth calling and checking.

At this point idk if you want to wait for your regular vet or just wait and see though.
