I have a possibly preggers mare that would be due for July and I wanted to compare her to other mares due around that time. Oh, I don't know if this makes a difference or not, but she's a Quarter horse/paint and the foal would be a mule. Thanks in advance for any pics!

Hi Chelsea, I don't have any due in July this year, but I had one last year. I think I took some photos of her in January of last year... they aren't on this computer, but I can get off my other one if you interested... just let me know. She was a Warmblood mare, and ended up foaling on July 14th, 2009.

Yes, this is her first foal. She is 5yrs. old about 16hh and- after I get some paperwork from her previous owner(my next door neighbor)-will be double registered as both AQHA and APHA. How do I post pics(I have a mac laptop if that makes a difference)? Oh, and Samantha I would appreciate seeing pics of your mare.

Hi Chelsea, I have a Holsteiner mare that's due the 3rd week in June. Would that work?

open a photobucket account at www.photobucket.com then upload photos there. Once uploaded, hover your mouse above the pic, and it'll give you 4 choices...copy and paste the "direct link" to this forum.....it's that easy!

Chelsea, it's really hard to tell at this time if she's bred or not. She technically doesn't have to be showing yet, and she looks as if she's been thin and possibly putting weight on (first place it goes is to the belly).....you could get a wee foal test or have a vet draw blood to know for sure. And...can mules be registered AQHA/APHA??

I don't know if mules can be registered. She was thin last year- actually emaciated might be a better description- but when I got her in May she was in good body condition again and was in perfect condition by June(she's a VERY easy keeper). About the wee foal test, since she is on 24/7 pasture any suggestions on how to get a sample from her?

Well, on the wee foal site, there are many great suggestions. One great way is to put new bedding in a stall, and then let her in...for some reason they can't NOT pee on new bedding. The other would be just sop it up with a papertowel or maxi pad. Usually, just before feeding, the horses all have to stop and pee....it doesn't have to be clean....just watch for her to pee, then go soak it up with a paper towel. then bring it in and ring it out. LOL yuck, but it works
And I thought you were talking about the mule foal being registered....now i look back and realize you probably meant the mare haha!!

Mules can be registered, but not with APHA but you can find many mule registries. Look at longears.com
Also Chelsea, those shots are really hard to tell by. Take direct side views of the mare, belly level, it will show her profile better as well as shots from directly behind her also belly level.

Here is my mare she is almost 5 months due end of June. She is not showing yet either.

The way I always collect the pee, is straight from the mare in a mason jar, wide mouth of course! Grab a book and a chair and wait. I have had false positives so.. I dont trust any other means of collection although others have has success. Be sure if you do the wee foal, to follow directions exactly and let the test and the urine both be at room temp.
Best Wishes

I will try and get a picture of Uh-O today. She is one week shy of 6 months. She is a maiden mare and I have never had a maiden mare pregnant before. So I'm pretty darn nervous about this pregnancy.

She is not really showing a baby belly yet, but she has filled out quite a bit in the mid section.

I would love to see your preggo mare Mary Anne! My battery on the camera was dead, when I was about to go outside to take the picture. Hopefully, the battery charger will hurry up and charge the battery, so I can get it on here before it gets dark outside.

I hope this works. It was so darn cold out, I about froze my fingers off. So I took them quick and went back inside to warm up. So they're not the best pictures, but I think it gives you some sort of idea how her belly looks.

Hey, sorry I haven't posted better pics yet- between the weather and her not letting me get the angle I want I haven't been able to get a decent pic. Marilyn, Thanks for posting the pic! Princess looks very much like your mare belly wise( either that or I just really want her to, lol). She's slightly smaller but not much. Does height affect how their bellies look?

I hope you get a chance to post pictures Chelsea, I'm very interested. Thanks, Marilyn

I'm not sure what height has to do with the belly look. Uh-O is 15.3 hands tall, if that helps. :-)

Mares don't always show alot this early in pregnancy, so I hate to make any comments, other than she's a very pretty mare! Take another picture a month or two from now, and it should be much more obvious.

I don't have the actual name, but look at the box. It should say, "safe for pregnant and nursing mares," or something to that effect. I think the last one I used was Ivermectin, but ALWAYS look for that statement, because the same brand may have different ones out there that are not safe.

Also, I know of one breeding program, where they only use liquid horse wormer, because it is easier on the mare's system. I think the name is Equine-care??? Not sure.
