The test she did had nothing to do with her heartbeat.... It was a blood draw.

She kind of looks preggo to me. I can't really tell with the pics but her teats look a little swollen unless she just naturally has larger teats.

Oh, I'm sorry. But high ecg in the blood is a sign of pregnancy

Yea... that's what I was reading on google, lol. I left her a message telling her to call me when she knows when can come so I can schedule that day off work. When she palpated her I was sure she wasn't pregnant, now I'm back to the is she or isn't she? I hate it.

It's better for her to be pregnant than have something seriously wrong with her.

Good luck, I hope everything works out.

Oh I know that. It was just eliminating that suspicion. I was thinking she was just an EXTREMELY easy keeper and I had been feeding her too much. This is my first time having my horses at home. I'm the type of person who wants to make sure they are doing everything in the best interest of everyone, if you know what I mean.

Evidently a lot of foals are missed on palpatation because of timing and/or position. That mare *looks* pregnant. Especially in the pic with her belly only on one side. How long have you had her? If she is pregnant, then reducing her hay/turnout is not a good idea.

Vet is coming out in a couple weeks. She had to "squeeze" me in. I ordered a Wee Foal test kit just for the heck of it.

Yesterday the vet called me and said that they had mixed up the test results with another Haflinger who was indeed pregnant. They were checking her blood levels because she had previously lost a foal. They didn't realize the mistake until they noticed that mare was NOT PREGNANT.

Annalie is NOT PREGNANT! There is nothing wrong with her blood results. The vet told me to go ahead an put her on her diet. Out of curiosity I did the Wee Foal and it came back negative too.

I'm really relieved because I didn't really want a foal that I had no idea of who the sire could be. The choices were really what was bothering me. It was either her own colt, a HaflingerXQH who was a conformational disaster, or a recently gelded ugly little sorrel grade Quarterish type horse. If I ever bred any of my horses I would want to make sure there was a considerable market for the foal.
