Just had our mare u/s today to check for twins. She carried twins to 324 days last year and they were stillborn. We had just gotten her a couple months before and thought everything was OK with the pregnancy. We gave her the year off and had her bred this year. And now her pregnancy is confirmed! He felt it was a 21 day pregnancy. I am so excited, but very aware that we have a long ways to go.
My vet was telling me some percentage of mares lose foals post 21 days pregnancy, but by then I had sort of spaced it. Anybody know the numbers?
Congrats! Molly, I have a QH mare that aborted twins last year, The guy that owned her had her ultrasounded and was told she wasn't even pregnant then later she aborted twins ( not exactly sure how far along) I got her shortly after this and gave her the year off, Took her last week to see if she was bred after being with our stud but she wasn't, vet said she had two follicles enlarged the same size and it was VERY IMPORTANT to get her ultrasounded 16 - 18 days after they bred again..Well, they did the deed this past weekend so We'll be heading in for an ultrasound in a coulple of weeks...I'm praying for a single baby!! Keep us posted on your mare!!!
Thanks karen! Yes, I'm stuck on light duty doing dispatch right now because of a knee injury, so I keep the board minimized on my screen and check every so often when its slow around here (which it is most of the time) It's been great keeping up with everyone and having all the support!! I am hoping My qh only has ONE fertilized egg!! I hate to think of having to have one "pinched off"... But I will keep yall posted on her too!!!!
