What are the iminent signs that a mare is going to abort? Well the reason I ask is because we just got a mare and I know she is pregnate, but I dont know when her due date is, I figure it to be in april or may. Well we got her, her yearling colt, and a gelding, 3 days ago. And during feeding she will hardly eat! for the past mornings and nights i've sat with her trying to get her to eat! She eats her hay OK but im still worried. Could she just be nervous from the move? It wasn't very stressful or anything, it was a mere 15 min. Also could having another pregnate mare nearby have any effect on her? They are not pasture buddies but they do have stalls next to each other. Any info would help, thank you

The move no matter how short can effect her. She may also just not like the grain your feeding or how your feeding it. It could be any number of things totaly unrelated to her pregnancy give her some time to adjust and see how she does.

It depends on how far along she is. Early pregnancies can be absorb but mid to late preganancies are usually aborted. Signs of abortion are bleeding, extreme leaking, a very swollen or inside out vulva and steady contractions, before a viable foal can be produced. There are other signs as well but these are what I look for. All the signs of labor before a viable foal can be born.

Mares do not absorb at any stage or preganacy.

Sharon is correct. The fetus (or vesicle in the earliest stages) is expelled, but at the very early stages, it is not usually noticed.

Well thanks everybody for being there I think I was just over reacting a littlelol. But she is doing better now, shes eating fine and everything, but now I have to mentally seperate her and her yearling, im not sure if hes still suckling, but she does have a bag and I dont know if thats from him or future baby????
So we will have to see.......

Lisa,
Keep a close watch on your mare...she should develope 'wax' on her teats...it's a 'plug' so they keep the colostrum and it's a good sign of impending birth. Since you don't have her due date, you'll have to watch her 24/7...mares DO foal in daylight!!
If you are not sure about colostrum once the foal is born, get some from your vet...comes in a paste form and you can also do a check via your vet to see if baby has gotten any, or enough.

Good luck & keep us posted.

Well we are starting to know more about this mare from old owners, She was exposed at he end of april early may. And that puts her due date end off march. She was a little skinny when she got here but now she is fattening up real quick. She has lost what little bag she had....
