    Her belly looks lopsided which makes me think that there is a foal in there. What else could cause such composition?!?

    Plus her whole rear end as been soft for over a week or so. I can press down in one area and it jiggles in another.

    Hello, I just joined and was reading this thread since I am in a similar situation.
    My wife and I got a mare a few weeks ago and was told she pregnant and should drop maybe April to June but she didn't look it, the vet didn't really look her over and said he would bet she isn't.
    However, since then we have checked her out much closer and believe she is.
    Her teats have enlarge a small amount ans her belly is growing very wide but not dropping down yet.
    I was hoping for an update on yours and wish you the best.
    P.S. This our first time to deal with this as well even though I grew up with horses we didn't breed them.

    Udder development

    Middle left 01/14 middle right 02/14
    Bottom left 03/14 bottom right 04/14

    She is still holding on. We can feel the foal moving with strong kicks. I will try to update with current photos tomorrow. I believe at this point she could foal anytime so I am keeping a close eye on her even though she doesn't have a full udder. She is at least 367 days to 371 days.

    So it's definitely not gut movement then? Yay! Hopefully the little one will be here soon.

    Foal
    She is not in foal... I had my Vet come back out and he said it was her hormones causing a false pregnancy and causing her udder to swell. I am thinking about getting her breed when she returns to normal.

    Sorry to hear it, I know how you were looking forward to having a foal around.

    How does he explain the hard kicks ? I can understand udder developement and even producing milk in a false pregnancy but kicking hard?
