I have a maiden mare that Is in foal that is apparently due June 23rd.
Now, in the evening feedings I always go out and clean her teats and keep them clean for her and she loves the scratches!, The other day I noticed they were bigger, so I checked and sure enough they were bigger, so I checked them the next day and they were bigger the next day and thus far have remained the same size since.
Her first breeding date was april, then June and then July, I had the vet out in Aug to palpate her and he confirmed 30+ days.
Possible for him to be a bit off on his palpation? and that she was actually around 60 days when he palpated her?
Christie - that was what my maiden looked like at 299 days. The first pic is the one I am refering to and yes, the vets can be wrong. They don't usually accept the stud if they are not truly in season. Was she hand bred or pasture bred?
