My mare was bred in March 05, so in April 05 showed in heat again & was rebred. Continued to tease & show heat so had her checked after 5 months and she is in foal and the vet could not tell if bred in March or April.She is large and showing signs of discomfort so we are preparing for a Feb 06 baby in case, Any thoughts on this? She is not a maiden.
Thanks,
Brenda

I keep an eye on the mare and start using FoalWatch, which tests the milk, when I start being able to express some. I have used this even with pasture-bred mares and not missed the birth.

It is always so smart just to be ready...and be ready for anything. Looking large and showing discomfort weeks/months before delivery is normal. I agree with Rooty about using Foal Watch, but you could be spending Big $'sss if you are testing for a long time. Change in behavior..off by herself, like she is looking for something is what I try to look for...doesn't work that way all the time though..LOL. Just be ready and put her away "cozy" for birthing every night. My Maiden Mares seem to start bagging up about a week before delivery as well. Good Luck & let us know :-)
