Bagging up at 8 months?

Once the mare is in foal the question period should be over, right? Wrong! It's only just beginning! Discuss ideas and tips here for management techniques for the pregnant mare, and the new born foal and it's mother.

Bagging up at 8 months?

Postby mynutmeg » Sun Feb 10, 2013 9:07 am

My mare is about 8 months pregnant (unless the vets got it very wrong) but this morning she has started bagging up. Is it normal for them to develop their udders this early or do I need to start getting ready sooner?
Apart from aspiration pneumonia at about 20 days (spending a week in the vets on IV antibiotics etc), somehow she kept the foal and has had an uneventful pregnancy since then. She's on recommended amounts of a stud balancer and hayalge

Premature udder development (and 8 months is premature) can be an indicator of impending abortion. Get your equine reproduction veterinarian out ASAP to check her... :(
We're always happy to try and help, but don't forget to check the articles section
of the website too, which has a search engine to help you look for answers!

Hi, sorry for the delay in reply - I had issues with my phone and only got out of hospital today.

Vet came on monday and palpated. He found a big, healthy, wriggly foal.
He thinks that she has oedema rather than anything else and not to worry about it. She's been absolutly fine in herself. Brave vet even went so far as to say he reckons colt foal that will come on 4th May :shock: :shock:
