I have a maiden mare, bred live cover,well I teased her 21days after last cover & she said no to stallion so I thought great she's in foal. Well vet was out, & he's a great repo guy. Well he palpated mare a day 82 & said she 's not in foal :-( Could he have missed it? This mare is still not her usual self, very mellow for her & I'av had to up her grain & all she wants to do is eat! Any thoughts?

I am kind of going through the same problem.
My mare was bred in April, confirmed in foal at day 36, started gaining weight, acting different like she normally does when she is pregnant. I had her re-palpated at day 90, and vet said she was open, must have absorbed the foal.
Well, my mare is still getting quite round looking, and is still acting just like she normally does when she is in foal and has never returned to heat. I've been teasing her diligently with my stallion every other day for 3 weeks now, and there has been nothing.
I have been told that it is possible that the pregnancy could have been missed with the palpation on day 90 as the pregnancy drops over the pelvic rim and is more difficult to feel at that time.
But, I've also been told that if she absorbed after day 36 or so, that her body could still be telling her that she is pregnant.
So, yes, it is possible that your vet could have missed the pregnancy, or your mare absorbed and her body is telling her that she is still pregnant.
I know it's not a lot of help, but just thought I'd pass on the information that I've been given about my own mare.
If you have any doubts, have your mare ultra sounded, I think that's what I'm going to do with mine.

Your best bets (both of you) is to draw blood and have a pregnancy check performed using an assay for estrone sulfate or total estrogens.

This assay is extremely accurate for fetal presence and viability after about 100 days of pregnancy through to term, as the specific estrogen is secreted by the fetal-placental unit, so no fetus, not elevated estrone sulfate level!
