I have a maiden mare that I bred to my stud in June, had her ultrasounded on june 16th, not with foal, and had a follical at 30mm. She came in standing heat a few days later, bred her agian twice 2 days apart. She went out of heat never came back in. It is now 93 days into her pregnancy. I used the pregnamare test, and I have one blue dot, and one blue dot that is fainter on the opposite side, what do you think? Also her milk glands in front of her bag are fuller.

I've never used the test, but googled around to see about it. What I read was, that 1 dot meant not pregnant, 2 dots pregnant.
At 93 days, it would be fairly easy to have her palpated to determine pregnancy status.
Me, I'm a big fan of ultrasounds....that way I can SEE it! :-)

It should also be noted that by 93 days the hormone eCG that is being assayed by the Pregnamare kit (note that they tell you they are looking for PMSG, but that is the old name for eCG!) is quite possibly naturally in decline.

Ultrasound is preferable, but by 90+ days, the fetus may have dropped over the pelvic brim into the abdomen and not be reachable again for ultrasound or palpation until 150+ days.

If you want a more definitive determination, wait another week until the mare is 100+ days and then have a blood assay performed for total estrogens or estrone sulfate. It is more reliable than the assay for eCG.
