This is Princess. About a month ago, our vet palpated her and said he couldn't find anything (yet he had said she looked very pregnant). I did a WeeFoal a week or so ago and it came out inconclusive:

Here are some pics I took of her today. I would appreciate any honest opinions and suggestions.
(And we have given her the first of two Botulism vaccinations just in case. I'd hate to lose another baby, especially the way poor Pistol Pete died last year).

When was she bred Brenda? How far along should she be?
I do not agree with your vet. She looks to be the body type who could carry that belly look without being prego. I'd like to see a few pics of her from further away....strait fromt he side and back. She sure is pretty and looks well cared for! :-)

Thanks, Diana. She's a real sweetheart. She is a saddle horse and one of my riding horses. She has a trailing star on her face that reminds me of the Star Of Bethlehem. I don't know if it makes any difference, but she has been irritable lately and doesn't want her belly touched. She will let me, but will walk away after about 30 seconds. Here are a couple more pics. I may have to get a couple more further away if you need them.

Not sure exactly when she was bred, as she was pasture bred by our warmblood paint stud colt, but pretty sure it was March.

well , i'm not sure you'd even notice if it was a march breeding. I have a mare due Feb 28th, and no sign of a belly yet....*sigh*. I'm certainly happy you were not expecting her to be 300 days or something, or i'd have to go with "not bred" LOL The thing is, she's in a hard time period for a vet to be able to *find* the foal....you can always order a WeeFoal test....or do a blood test, if it's not possible to wait till she starts to show more (or not) Keep taking pics of her monthly, so you will know what she looks like. It's hard to tell when you see her every day. Also, when you take the pics, take them from about 30 feet away.....strait from the side, and strait from the back. That way you will notice any changes in shape easily :-)

Hey Brenda... Was that a wee foal 45 or wee foal 120? I assume 120, and if so thats a clear negative. Sorry. But she does have a preggers shape from behind. I can understand your situation.
Course she could be full on that very yummy looking hay!( compliment BTW)
You can always do another wee foal 120 and see if you get the same results.

It was a WeeFoal 120. That's what I was thinking, just wanted another opinion. She does love her Bermuda hay!
