A little advice needed, please
 
Missy is getting really irritable. Yesterday, we had a lot of movement in her flank area and in her lower belly(by teats) - Missy quickly shot her ears back and kicked her stomach and flickered her tail before letting out a huge sigh.

Today she is super miserable, keeps trying to bite, not wanting to be groomed, very sluggish on walks, turned her out and instead of usual galloping, we got a slow walk and a big sigh and graze.

I know we still don't know if she is in foal or not, but if she is, please tell me this is normal for a mare that's due to foal..

Any advice?

(Bred 20th April but was living with stallion 24/7 so could have been covered before)

I would get a vet out asap. Because if she is not pregnant then there could be other complications going on..

I will say that if she is in foal then it would be common I would think. And from what it sounds like she could be since she was running with a stallion. I know all the mares I have been around that were expecting were total grouches LOL

Because you don't know she's in foal I would call a vet incase it's colic.
