Hi
I have a 5 yr old APHA maiden mare @176days today (the 13th of Aug) who has begun to make a bag. She's out to pasture and on her goin overs i've noticed a "change" in her udder but this time its way more then I believe she should have. (Just seems to continue). She was ultrasounded @ 18days with a 2w 1d fetus. She has no vag discharge,temp is norm.
She does have a vet app on Tuesday. I've spent all day reading and making notes of what it could be and tests that should be done. I am 100% on her breeding dates, she was hand bred. She was cultured before breeding that was neg. I am just heartbroken and nuts over what the vets goin to find. My gut just keeps screaming twins. She's just has a very big belly..I even got the tape measure to see what it was and its 81" around. I've been making comments last few months that if it wasn't for the ultrasound I'd think she had twins in there followed by a laugh...well :-( its not funny cuz her udder is growing when it shouldn't be. Her udder use to be nothing but tight skin to her belly with lil nips. Shes always been a very fit mare nice tucked up belly,so dunno if thats what makes her just seem bigger. But something is goin on to cause the udder
Here are her udder pics

Seeing how she is a maiden she could do abnormal things. I've heard of many maiden mares who bagged just after the breeding, some who didn't bag until hours before foaling, and even some who didn't bag at all. Anyway, just giving possibilities. Good luck.

Soooo...vet found no evidence of a twin...No evidence of any kind of infection..We are waiting on the hormone blood work.Did give her a shot of progestrin. Her udder has since shrank from what it was Sat (thank goodness) He did say its poss that she had a hormone spike that caused her body to do that it did?? Has neone ever heard of that. So...we are still in wait mode. Still worried since we don't have a "real" answer to what happened. But that baby did look wonderful on the u/s :-) She was just a wiggling ALL over the place..and yes "her"!!! Looks like a poss filly. Will update when I hear back about her blood work.
