Our mare may be 63 or so days preg. I say may by because I've had 3 conflicting theories. At this point I'm just gonna wait & see . But if she were to loose the preg. at this point what would i see.?

If I dont see anything happen ( loss) do I have her vaccinated at what would be the 5 month mark just in case?

I dont think you would see anything, but I may be wrong. I think she would just absorb it.
I would wait and have her palpated again before I gave her the 5 month shot.

So Far - no heat cycle - no nothin. maybe an increase in appetite- ( Penny likes to eat) I check on her several times a day no discharge so as far as I can tell she hasn't aborted anything either. I counted today to be day 91.

Its gonna be a long winter

Jane, you're entering a period b/w 3 and 5 months where it is more difficult to ultrasound. If you're going to ultrasound, do it soon or wait till the 6th month....as you may get a false result in between these times. Don't be discouraged...if she's still in foal, her chances are now very slim of losing or resorbing. (after 90 days) Typically, if a mare resorbs b/w day 1 and 5 months, you'll not see anything. If she's carried beyond the 35 day mark, then resorbed, it is possible she'll not come back into heat for 220 days or so, meaning, you might think she's bred (and she will too) until next spring when her next natural heat cycle comes. I'd go ahead and have her palpated or Ultrasounded, so you know what to expect. It's a long time to wait, and very disappointing, when she gets bigger and bigger and bags in spring, then there's no baby. I've been there and done that. For your own peace of mind, I'd have her checked.

I had her checked the beginning of Aug. They vet said what he saw didn't look like a normal 60 day preg. That her uterus looked like she was coming into heat and that she had a large follicle on the right side. He also stated at that time how he misses a mare having twins - was'nt a good outcome either.
She still has not gone into heat. She is very visual when in heat. She ran a 24 day cycle before she was bred. So its either shes preg. or she thinks she is. Ugh!!

I was thinking I might get the wee foal thing and test her in a few weeks. It that accurate?

wee foal is only accurate between 120 and 300 days....so you'd have to wait a bit.

Hello,
I have a mare that is 120 days preg. I had her ultrasound
Two weeks ago and everything looked good. Last Monday my gelding slipped passed me into her pasture and chased the heck out of her. It was about ten minutes before I could get them separated. He never kicked her but she was very hot and winded. Now three days later she acts like she is coming into heat. I am happy to read here on this site that some preg. mares do that. But I have two questions.
1. At four months If she did lose the foal would I notice anything? I have been watching!
2. Is it bad for pregnant mares to get hot and sweaty would something like that cause them to abort

You may or may not notice anything - it depends greatly on how much you are around your horses, and if they are in stalls or turned out. The fetus at this stage is only a few inches long, so it is entirely possible for it to be aborted and not noticed - especially if the horse are at pasture. IF you are around them a lot though, you might be lucky (???) enough to see the expulsion of the membranes and fetus.

By 120 days, there is less risk of damage to the fetus as a result of the mare getting hot than there would be during the early embryonic stages (up to ~35 days). You're probably fine on that point.
