Hi,

My mare was on lease/loan last season and was suppose to be returned empty. however I am beginning to have my suspicions. This wouldn't have been an intentional covering. Basically she has started producing wax on the ends of her teats and now has calcium crystals? above the nipples

Here is a pic, can this happen in a non pregnant mare? from a belly point of view she didn't show any signs of a foal until the last month of her pregnancy last year so although she is a bit bigger than her normal frame she isn't massive. She has shown no sign of coming in to heat and normally starts cycling around feburary.

Thank you for looking. all thought/advice is very much appreciated as I am a complete novice to the breeding game :D

It is very possible that she is pregnant. Her udder gives that impression, especial since she has not come into heat yet. I think you should consult your vet.

Hi,

I have they ran a blood test which came back negative, However after looking on the internet on various sites (including medical journals) the consensus was that after 200 days a blood test would be inaccurate as the hormone they test for has dropped off? She would be at a minimum of 240 days at the time the test was done so in theory it would have comeback negative anyway. The other thing about the test that concerns me was due to the time the blood was taken coinciding with holidays over here the bloods were delayed in getting to the lab so I don't know how this would effect the results (the bloods took 6 days to reach the lab). They said a scan wouldn't show anything as the foal would sit to low now?

I don't know how true any of the above is as I am a complete and utter novice in the world of breeding.

Thank you for your help

Is it possible you could have her palpated? Then you would know for sure. As far as a scan, I'm thinking you are talking about an ultrasound; my mare had an US (abdominal) to check the placenta at around 280 days. You could see everything.

Good luck! What is your mare and what would she have been bred to?
