My mare stil hasnt foaled yet. She was bred the end of Febuary of 05. She was having big contractions last week and her bags are full and hard. She has every sign of foaling except the water breaking. How long will she safeley be able to carry this baby? Is a good idea to have the vet induce labor? Thanks, Jade

Hi jade,

I would not have the vet induce labor.. She is probablyhaving trouble positioning the baby. When she is ready, she will have the little booger!LOL. I know it is hard to sit and wait, but when it is time she will have it.

I know i am not much help right now, but i am in the same shape as you.. waiting on my mare to foal. She isn't due until the 15th of march, but she is showing the same signs. probably trying to position.

i have heard of one going i think over 400 days to beat the world record! of course you don't want to wait that long. She will have it soon. just sit and wait and wait and wait.....no kidding. What color is her milk? can you express any? what does her vulva look like? elongated? puffy? has she got the v'd shape on her belly?

got any pictures?

let me know...

Hi Jade,
It is not uncommon at all for mares to go a year. My mare last year finally foaled at 361 days and everything was perfect. I also had a mare a few years ago foal at 375 days and she also had no problems.
NEVER think of inducing labor in a mare just because she has gone over her "due" date. My vet has told me that every time he has ever induced labor in a mare it was a train wreck.
Just don't worry, when your foal is done baking, it will come out of the oven :-)

A friend of mine had a mare that birthed a little over 12 months and 2 1/2 weeks. The baby was huge coming out, but other than that there weren't any problems. Haha, two years later she sold him over for over 18,000. Best colt she ever put out!
